Error Trapping in a function

Hi,

This code crashes because "My Documents" should be "Documents" on some systems with error code 1004.

How do I trap the error?

    Sub OpenQuoteTemplate()
    Set objQuoteTemp = Workbooks.Add(Template:=QuoteTemplatePath(stVersion))

End sub
Function QuoteTemplatePath(OCVersion)

        QuoteTemplatePath = Environ("UserProfile") & "\My documents\Quote Processing\John Lewis Quote Template vN JLP Classic Shutters.xltx"

End Function


I've tried putting error traps in both the function and the procedure but neither seem to be triggered.

Thanks

On Windows machines you should be able to use:
createobject("Wscript.shell").specialfolders("MyDocuments") & "\Quote Processing\John Lewis Quote Template vN JLP Classic Shutters.xltx"

Open in new window

Also see this link for an alternative to rorya's suggestion http://www.cpearson.com/excel/SpecialFolders.aspx

Using the code on that website (one of the best on Excel programming!) you could do the following:
Function QuoteTemplatePath(OCVersion)

    QuoteTemplatePath = GetSpecialFolder(&H5) & "\Quote Processing\John Lewis Quote Template vN JLP Classic Shutters.xltx"

End Function

Open in new window

Thanks guys for the solution to the error, but what about the answer to the question?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

How about this:
Function QuoteTemplatePath(OCVersion)
    On Error GoTo err_handler
    QuoteTemplatePath = Environ("UserProfile") & "\My documents\Quote Processing\John Lewis Quote Template vN JLP Classic Shutters.xltx"
err_handler:
    If Err.Number = 1004 Then
        QuoteTemplatePath = Environ("UserProfile") & "\Documents\Quote Processing\John Lewis Quote Template vN JLP Classic Shutters.xltx"
    End If
End Function

btw, if you feel your question wasn't answered you shouldn't accept the answers.

I recommend re-opening the question.

Firstly, apologies for causing such confusion.

I accepted the solutions from the experts because I was in a hurry and felt that fixing the problem is, obviously, better than just trapping the error.  I was, however, still interested in how the error should have been trapped.

I can't see a way of re-opening the question - should I really delete it?

Thank-you
