Someone gave me a working VB5 prog that had been compiled and worked fine.
I had to add a few lines to it, and so mirrored it on a working machine to add the code and then test it. The test worked fine.
The altered programme was then moved to the "live" location and run from there. An error message "Automation Error" and a long (smthg like -2120000456") displayed. So it failed. The added code was just vanilla variable processing, in a few loops. How come it runs on the test machine, but not on the live location, and what is and what is causing the Automation Error.
Urgent answer would be great. Thanks.
