Custom AutoCAD BOM macro for 2006 with 2007???

I have a VBA macro that was originally written for, I believe, AutoCAD Mechanical 2002.  The macro has been updated and such to work with AutoCAD Mechanical 2005 and AutoCAD Electrical 2005 and 2006.  We are looking to upgrade to Electrical 2007 and when testing the macro found that it no longer works.

The function of the macro is to pull information off of the blocks inserted into the drawing and create a Bill Of Materials in the corner of the layout.  I am pretty new to VBA for AutoCAD but know VB pretty well.

There is no error and the command line in AutoCAD says that the macro ran.  The thing is that it does not update the Bill Of Materials.  I can probably post the code for the .dvb file if that will help..

Any idea's or known problems with the way AutoCAD differs in the way 2006 and 2007 handle the macros or something?

Thanks for any responses in advance,
