Au_ID is not set to nothing.

The proc must be,

Property Get SetName ....
SetName = Au_Id
end property

manchula, I just said the same thing, it is considered bad form to "jump" for points. Whilst 20 points may not be anything to worry about, the principles of the site are to expand knowledge and skills. Posting answers straightaway especially when the answer you post has already been given as a comment is not considered good behaviour. I know that you are relatively new to EE but I would suggest that you don't continue to jump in in this way otherwise you risk complaints regarding your behaviour.

A questioner has the ability to "Accept a comment as answer" so there really is no need to post answers in this manner. This is the second occasion that I have noticed you posting an answer without adding significantly to previous comments, and in this case repeating what was already said.

vnd,

If you are happy with my answer, please reject manchula's and accept my comment or ask for further clarification. I will be happy to help if you need more information on why your original code didn't work and why the suggested solution will.

Timcotte, did you check the time of my posting? There's only a minute difference between yours and mine. Do you think that I copied your comment & made that as answer? If so, sorry I can't help you.

I can see that you did not just copy my comment! I am merely pointing out that posting an answer in this way is not necessarily helpful.

In similar cases, I have found that most "experts" would apologise on realising that someone else had already made the same comment/answer or at least recognise the fact that someone else has done so.
