Hello Experts,
I just want to zip two files but the code below receives an error message, “Object variable or With block variable not set”.  Can you please help?

Private Sub Zip_Click()
Dim SourceTable As String
    Set db = CurrentDb

Set oApp = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
    pathname = "H:\Email\"
    NewZip (pathname & "Test.zip")
 
    oApp.NameSpace(pathname & "1.zip").CopyHere "H:\Email\MonthlyParplanDetail.xls"
    oApp.NameSpace(pathname & "2.zip").CopyHere "H:\Email\MonthlyParplanDetail.pdf"
    oApp.NameSpace(pathname & "3.zip").CopyHere pathname & "item_settings.zip"
    Set oApp = Nothing
   
    MsgBox "Zipped"
End Sub

Excellent as the material helped me derive the correct code to zip multiple files and my learning was to include time (Pause between events) for compacting.
