Runtime Error 4198 In Word Macro When ActiveDocument.SaveAs

Hi,

I am getting the error "Runtime Error 4198" In Word Macro when it hits the following code.

        If ActiveDocument.SaveFormat = 0 Or ActiveDocument.SaveFormat = 12 Then
            ActiveDocument.SaveAs _
            filename:=strDocName(0) & ".pdf", _
            FileFormat:=wdFormatPDF

The problem is very hard to understand as I have the same set of macros running on four different computers, but its falling over on one only.
I have run the msi from microsoft to fix the converting to pdf, but can't see why it falls over on one pc and not the others.

Cheers,
shane.

Have you tried doing the same SaveAs manually? It might give you a more informative message than 'Command failed'.

Are all the machines using the same version of Word? What version is that, by the way?

We are using windows xp and office 2007.  We tried it manually and it worked fine.
