Private Sub CheckSpelling()
Dim oSpellChecker As Object
Dim stText As String
Dim stNew_Text As String
Dim iPosition As Integer

    On Error GoTo OpenError
   
   
    Set oSpellChecker = CreateObject("Word.Basic")
   
    'oSpellChecker.FileNew
    'oSpellChecker.Insert ActiveForm.rtbMain.Text
    'oSpellChecker.ToolsSpelling
    'oSpellChecker.EditSelectAll
    'stText = oSpellChecker.Selection()
    'oSpellChecker.FileExit 2

    'If Right$(stText, 1) = vbCr Then _
    '  stText = Left$(stText, Len(stText) - 1)
    'stNew_Text = ""
    'iPosition = InStr(stText, vbCr)
    'Do While iPosition > 0
    '  stNew_Text = stNew_Text & Left$(stText, iPosition - 1) & vbCrLf
    '  stText = Right$(stText, Len(stText) - iPosition)
    '  iPosition = InStr(stText, vbCr)
    'Loop
   
    'stNew_Text = stNew_Text & stText
    '
    'ActiveForm.rtbMain.Text = stNew_Text
    '
    'MsgBox "Spell Check Complete"
   
    'Exit Sub

OpenError:
    MsgBox "Error"
End Sub




I commented out all the stuff except for Set oSpellChecker = CreateObject("Word.Basic") and it still gets an error. It doesn't get a syntax error or anything, but the msgbox pops up. What did I do wrong?

you have to leave the :

Exit Sub

statement in, otherwise the compiler will process the command to launch the msgbox!

Don't worry about leaving Exit Sub in, if an error occurs the compiler will goto the OpenError label!

Is this understandable?????
