    I get this message everytime I run the Publish folder list to MS Word script:

    Formativ Applet runtime error
    Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment: ‘Word.ActiveDocument.Tables.Add’ at line 260, column 2

    Any ideas how I can get this to work?

    Hi,

    Which version of MS Word are you using?

    I’m using Word 97 SR2

    MS Word 97 does not have many of the table automation commands available in later versions. For example, it appears that Word 97 does not allow us to set shading and styles that we used in the applet.

    We will email you an updated applet which now checks the Word version and, if it is Word 97, then the applet will not set the shading and color.

    When I try to publish to Word, I get this error:
    Formativ Applet compilation error
    Expected statement at line 204, column 2

    Then a dialog box that says:
    Sorry, the applet could not be executed.
    Applet could not be parsed.
    It contains errors.

    Line 204 says:
    with Selection
    in the Write Page Header function

    Is this because the applet won’t work with Word 97? Can it be altered to work?

    Could you please confirm which applet are you running? Was the applet installed with the product or did you download it from either our Web site or Cool Solutions?

    Once we know the exact applet, we should be able to identify and rectify the problem, which will be a Word 97 version issue.

    I think I have tried both versions of the multiple signature file – one downloaded from Advansys and one from install. But I don’t recall any difference.

    It also chokes on this code around line 274:
    ‘——————————————————————————-
    ‘ Display the available signatures in the list box
    ‘——————————————————————————-
    Function SetupDlg(LBCtl, FileList)

    Set Dlg = Utilities.NewControlBoxDialog
    With Dlg
    .Height = 250
    .Caption = CAPTION
    .Title = “Select a signature”
    .WizardImage = IMAGE
    End With

    It seems the Set Dlg = Utilities.NewControlBoxDialog is the objectionable line.
    I appreciate your help –

    When I right-click on a folder in the main window, this is the error I get. Using Word 97 SR 2. Any ideas?

    Formativ Applet compilation error
    Expected statement at line 204, column 2

    applet could not be parsed….

    Line 204 is “with selection”

    function TypeHeader

    dim Folder

    Set Selection = Word.Selection

    with Selection

    ‘ Setup page margin
    .PageSetup.RightMargin = 54
    .PageSetup.LeftMargin=54

    Thanks –
    Nancy

    We have uploaded a modified Publish folder list applet to our Web site for test purposes. It can be downloaded from:

    http://www.advansyscorp.com/beta/publish folder list to ms word_bsp.vbf

    In this modified applet, the left and right margin commands (for the word document) have been commented out (near line 274). We hope that this may work around the problem, which certainly appears to be a Word version related issue.

    In regards to your first posting, the problem with the Multiple Signatures solution, we are unable to duplicate the problem so far. Unfortunately we have no other similar reports which may assist in identifying the cause. Does the same problem occur on multiple workstations?

    Thank you for the rewritten code, but I’m afraid I get another error at line 274 (the second line below):

    set IntroDlg = Utilities.NewControlBoxDialog
    with IntroDlg
    .Caption = CAPTION
    .Title = “Add or edit a message note”
    .Button1Caption = “&Ok”
    .Button2Caption = “&Cancel”
    .Button3Visible = TRUE
    .Button3Caption = “&Time Stamp”
    .Button4Visible = TRUE
    .Button4Caption = “&Delete Note”
    .Description = HRT&”This applet allows you to add or edit note attached to this “&_
    MsgType & “.” & MsgSubj & HRT & HRT &_
    “Click ‘Time Stamp’ to add date and time inside the edit box. ” &_
    “Click ‘Delete Note’ to delete the note attached with this message.”
    end with

    Does this applet require any editing on my part or will it run as is?

    Thanks again –

    I’m still getting the error on lines 56 and/or 273:
    Formativ applet compilation error. Expected statement at line 56, col. 5 (or line 273, col. 2). The applet could not be parsed. It contains errors.

    Which of these is correct syntax in lines 56-57?

    ‘ Full path to the location of the signature files
    SIGNATURE_LOCATION = Utilities.GetDataDirectory
    FILENAME = SIGNATURE_LOCATION + “ADV_MultipleSignature.ol”

    ‘ Full path to the location of the signature files
    c:program filesadvansysformativdata = Utilities.GetDataDirectory
    FILENAME = c:program filesadvansysformativdata + “ADV_MultipleSignature.ol”

    Are there any other entries that I should change?

    We can’t yet determine a logical reason for the problems which you are experiencing. If you have not done so already, we recommend reinstalling Formativ.

    It may be related to either a worksation specific configuration issue or perhaps interaction with another piece of software. Do you have any monitoring software operating, such as an anti-virus program?

    If you are in a position to test it, does the same problem happen on another workstation?
