I am trying to log all my communication Error messages to the log file.
 ERMsg$ = "Break Received"
            lLogType = vbLogEventTypeError
            sPrintMsg = ERMsg$ & vbCrLf & _
            " Error: [" & Err.Number & "]: " & _
            Err.Description & " Error in: " & Err.Sorce
           
            App.LogPath = "C:\HLRS4.1\Error.log"
            App.StartLogging App.LogPath, vbLogAuto
            App.LogEvent sPrintMsg, lLogType
I created an empty log file on my c drive. But I am getting  error : Can't assign to the read-only property
 App.LogPath = "C:\HLRS4.1\Error.log"
Returns the path and filename of the file used to capture output from the LogEvent method. Not available at design-time; read-only at run time.

From the Help menu:

Syntax

object.LogPath = path

Part      Description
object      An object expression that evaluates to an object                  in the Applies To list.
path      String. The path and filename of a log file.

what changes should i make to my code ? Thank you...
