I am attempting to load an XML document using DOMDocument.load from a VBA program in MS Word. When I do so from an account with Administrators group privileges, all works OK. When I do so from a Users group account, I get Access Denied errorCode -2147024891. How do I load an XML document using the DOMDocument and subsequent MSXML2.IXMLDOMLIST/NODE without Admin privileges? Can domcnfg be used to make the COM object operate at the correct permission level? How? I am very new at VB and XML... please help.... thanks.
