VBA Trouble

I have some code that was written for Excel 7.0 and Word 7.0 but now we use Office 97.

I haven't had to modify any of the code as it appears to work fine however when in Word the cursor doesn't move to the designated bookmarks when required and when printing the Word document I have all the indications of the document printing but nothing comes out of the printer!!!

The code follows:

Sub PrintInvoice()

  Sheets("Account register").Select

  If Selection.Rows.Count <> 1 Or Selection.Columns.Count <> 256 Then
        MsgBox "You have not made a valid selection!  Please select the row " _
        + "which contains the data for the invoice you want to print." _
        , 48, "Invalid Selection"
        Exit Sub
  End If
       
  Set Word7 = CreateObject("Word.Basic")
  RowRef = Selection.Row

  RFI$ = Cells(RowRef, 1)
  RFIDate$ = Cells(RowRef, 2)

  Application.ActivateMicrosoftApp xlMicrosoftWord
       
  With Word7
        .ScreenUpdating 0
        .AppMaximize 1
        .FileOpen "c:\blank.doc"
        .ViewZoomWholePage
   
        .EditGoTo "RFI"
        .Insert RFI$
        .EditGoTo "Date"
        .Insert RFIDate$
       
        .ScreenUpdating 1
    Answer = .MsgBox("Are you sure you want to print the invoice?", _
                    "Print Invoice", 36)
       
    If Answer = -1 Then
      .ToolsOptionsPrint , , 1
      .FilePrint , , , , , , , , , 2
    End If
       
        .ViewNormal
        .FileClose 2
    If .CountWindows() = 0 Then .AppClose
  End With
 
  Set Word7 = Nothing
  AppActivate "Microsoft Excel"

End Sub

There are differences in Word97 VBA and Word 7 WordBasic.  Word97 will read a macro in Word 7 format and convert it to the appropriate  Word97 format.  Try creating a macro in Word7 using the above code, import it into Word97, and see if the necessary changes are revealed.

A second suggestion, I may be a bug... there is an Office97 service pack release available on the net at:
