Problems with Application.OrganizerCopy in Word 2003 !

Hi all Experts :-)

I'm trying to use Application.OrganizerCopy in Word 2003 but it just gives me an error message:
"Run-time error '4198';
Command failed"

Here's the code I'm trying to run:

    Application.OrganizerCopy Source:= _
        "C:\Documents and Settings\Peter\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\Normal.dot" _
        , Destination:="C:\kjdhfkshf.doc", Name:="NewMacros1", Object:= _
        wdOrganizerObjectProjectItems



This code works fine in Word 2000 !!

Any ideas ??

Regards
Peter

Are you sure that's where your normal.dot resides?  Do a search on your hard drive to find out or go to Tools, Options, File Locations.

I found the solution my self!
It seems that you can't copy from the Normal.dot file!
After a LOT of searching I finally found out what you can and can't do ....

Shouldn't stuff like this be in "OrganizerCopy Method" page in the help file ???
