VBA script error

When I run the following, I get an error only when twosided = false.  It runs normally when twosided = true.
If xlSheet.Range("PFNumSides") = "2" Then
            twosided = True
        Else
            twosided = False
        End If
        
    'Page cover - ink
    For i = 1 To wdDoc.ContentControls.Count
        If wdDoc.ContentControls(i).Title = "inks1" Then
            If xlSheet.Range("PrintFoldColor").Text = "Color/Black&White" Then
                wdDoc.ContentControls(i).Range.Text = "4/1"
            Else
                If xlSheet.Range("printFoldColor").Text = "Color" Then
                    If twosided = True Then
                        wdDoc.ContentControls(i).Range.Text = "4/4"
                    Else
                        wdDoc.ContentControls(i).Range.Text = "4/0"
                    End If
                    Exit For
                Else
                    If twosided = True Then
                        wdDoc.ContentControls(i).Range.Text = "1/1"
                    Else
                        wdDoc.ContentControls(i).Range.Text = "1/0"
                    End If
                    Exit For
                End If
                Exit For
            End If
            Exit For
        End If
    Next

Open in new window

The error says "Automation error Call was rejected by callee."
Any ideas?

What type of object is that content control?  Maybe it's trying to interpret it literally as a division by zero.

Try
wdDoc.ContentControls(i).Range.Text = CStr("4/0")

Thanks rob, but that is going into a microsoft word document as text. - and last night it mysteriously started working - I have no explanations at this point.

I am going to mark this as completed - but ...

Last night - the macro suddenly started working - I have no explanation as to why - just that it has.

Nothing changed, no code was changed, The only possibility is that a new instance of excel was opened - but I am not even sure about that as I had opened and closed the spreadsheet multiple times before.

Marking this one finished, but with no understanding of why it was happening in the first place.

If you read my previous comment, you will see that it just started working last night.

I still have no idea why, but I no longer have a problem if it is working.
