From within Access 2000, I am trying to create a Windows shortcut from a file I specify...

ie..   With file         abc.txt    located in C:\Temp
       Create Shortcut   abc.lnk    located in D:\MyFiles


I have got this to work every now and then using  

Dim wshShell As Object
Set wshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Dim lnkDesktop As Object
Set lnkDesktop = wshShell.CreateShortcut(D:\MyFiles\abc.lnk")
With lnkDesktop
   .TargetPath = "C:\Temp\abc.txt"
         .WorkingDirectory = "C:\Temp"
         .Save
    End With
       Set lnkDesktop = Nothing
       Set wshShell = Nothing


As shown in this answer...
http://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/Q.20224167.html

but every now and then, on an infrequent basis,  I get a run-time error stating the following...

Run-time Error -2147024769(8007007f)
Automation Error
The specified procedure can not be found

I think this might be a reference problem, however, as it runs every now and then... I'm not quite sure what is going on....

Any help would be appreciated...

Thanks in advance

Unfortunately these didn't help... They are more for moving shortcut files rather than creating shortcut files....

Hi,

Sorry for late reply:

Go to your Project reference to add the M$ Script Languange Library. And see how if the problem solved.

* the actually library name may be different, sorry as here don't have VB installed.

regards
