Hi MrKevorkian,

The simplest method to personalize the message is:
1. Create a error handler (in the client of the component)
2. in the handler test if the err.number is 70 (permission denied), if this is the case
use a personalized message.




Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim obj As Object
    On Error GoTo errh
   
    Set obj = CreateObject("proyecto1.class1")
    obj.DemoMethod
 
    Set obj = Nothing
   
    Exit Sub
errh:
    MsgBox Err.Number & " " & "My personalized message"
End Sub


regards,
cero

I don't think this is an error you can handle in your component as the system has determined rights prior to launching the component.  This is a system generic prompt and I don't know of a way to change it.

AzraSound is right, you can't handle this in the component, but as I mention in my previous comment, you have to do that in the client of the component.
