When the object of one project is accessed from some different project a run time error comes as follows:

“Object Variable or With block variable not set”

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub DisProfile()

Dim obj As VBComponent
If ActiveSheet.Name = "Discount Profile" Then
    For Each obj In Workbooks("APTv3.2.xls").VBProject.VBComponents
        If obj.Name = "frmFlatDiscount" Then
            obj.Designer.Controls.Item("txtDiscount").text = "56"   ‘ Error comes here
            Exit For
        End If
    Next
    Worksheets("Discount Profile").ComboBox84.Value = Worksheets("Discount Profile").Range("A9")
End If
End Sub
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here I am trying to set text in the textBox of the form frmFlatDiscount

You must say
dim obj as new vbcomponent

or
dim obj as vbcomponent
.
.
.
.
set obj = new vbcomponent '' before using the object obj
By saying new you are actually creating an instance of the object called vbcomponent.

Thanks for the quick response

Now it is giving the error as "ActiveX component can't create object"
at the newly added line:
   set obj = new vbcomponent            ' error comes here

Its because you have not added a reference from Project menu.
Add Project >> references >> yourvbcomponent

dim obj as new vbcomponent
-------------------------------------------------------------------
or you must do this
I am giving an example here:
set obj=createobject("scripting.filesystemobject")

If you do this (the above line), no need to say 'new' etc.

BTW,
which component are you trying to add?!?!
