I receive a Run-Time error 5151 message when I try out a module in Immediate view.  When I choose the debugger it yellow highlights the line:

Set m_objects=m_objWord.Documents.Add(m_strDIR & m_strTEMPLATE)

Can anyone suggest what's going wrong here?

Thanks,

Andrew

is the document path valid?

i.e. check what it is beforehand

msgbox m_strDIR & m_strTEMPLATE

Would help when you post the exact message.
Some thoughts:
1) Do you have a final "\" in the m_strDIR
2) Does the constructed name already exist ?
