Here is a tough and confusing problem i have, please consider the following code

actDoc = WordApp.Documents.Open(arrStringPath(intFileCount))

actDoc is of type Word.Document
WordApp is of type Word.Application
arrStringPath has the pathname of the word document

When debugging, this message appears as the line of code above is processed

* no user rights (i have sufficient rights)
*document name of path invalid (all path names are stored in the array)

I have used a watch to confirm pathnames are being input into the array

what's intFileCount?

Why don't you just keep the argument as arrStringPath?

'late binding. No references


        Dim objWord As Object
        Dim objDoc As Object

        objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
        objDoc = CreateObject("Word.Document")
        objWord.Visible = True

Try hardcoding the file name:

actDoc = WordApp.Documents.Open("c:\test1.doc")
