I guess that the code is a Macro inside of an Office module (word, excel etc).
Now, did you upgrade Office or Windows to 2k? I guess that you mean Windows, but anyway, on my W2k workstation that piece of code works fine...

okey guys, thanks for that, but

I'm currently using access 97, Reason being is that all our clients are on access 97 and will not upgrade, So ive upgraded 98 to 2000 professional. The module written is an actual function inside of access called my a sub function, anyway i wont get into that,

Im just wondering if its something to do with win professional.



I'll leave this open for a while in case anybody else has any idea's

im still stuck

whats happening is that i get this error :-

run-time error 5

Invalid procedure call or aguement & that happens on .filename="*.csv"

when it finds a file with that extension. WHY ??????

ive tried it on all the other computer which are running win 98 and NT4 but it will not work with 2000 professional.

what can it be

i've even tried it with a .txt extension and if it finds a file it still does the same.
