I have a MS Word template that a user fills out and saves to a specific drive and directory. I've written code in MS Access that looks @ this directory and takes all of the .doc files and populates the MS Access database. Everything was working fine. This morning I tried running a test from beginning (creating the MS Word doc) to end (Importing the docs.) and I am now receiving an Automation error: The object invoked has disconnected from its clients. I've also had someone else try on their PC and they too are receiving the same error. The import still works on the other persons PC, but not on mine. Has anyone experienced this problem before and where do I start. Any help is greatly appreciated.
