Hi

I have this problem
ActiveProject.Tasks(i).Name when I reach this poing the object is not initialized. But what every I try with I get an exception

if ActiveProject.Tasks(i).Name > ""
if ActiveProject.Tasks(i).Name is nothing = false

etc.etc. all fails

But I guess this is easy :)

Use:

If Not (ActiveProject.Tasks(i) Is Nothing) Then

You need to refer to the object, not a property thereof.
