Script error - Microsoft Access 2010 automation Google Maps

I have been trying to resolve the following:

http://www.devhut.net/2013/10/18/webbrowser-activex-control-google-maps-invalid-character-scripting-error/

This was the final fix for a previous ASK:

I opened up the access database file referred to above. I anticipated the fix database would have a form with a command button to execute the registry fix. I think, though, the fix must have been applied to an open event on the form and it executed when I opened the database. I received an error on my Windows 8 system upon opening the form.

I don't know what to do from here, but the script error still persists.

Previous ASK below:


"I have created a Microsoft Access application automating the process of creating driving directions using Google Maps. The address data originates in Microsoft Access text boxes.

This used to work on my Windows 7 system. Now, I am getting the error on a Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 system. My client has one computer that is able to run the application without error. It is a Windows XP system running an older version of Microsoft Access."

You mention several errors, but you haven't told us what those errors are.

Can you show screenshots of the errors?

Sure, I'll attach an access database that demonstrates the error. If it does not generate an error on your system, please let me know.. Thanks!!

Not sure , ...but as a start, you are using "Global" variables, ...try changing that to "Public"

Also set the VBA option to require variable declarations for all new modules.
Then add "Option Explicit" to the top of all of your existing modules.

Are you sure that the Installed / default web browser has nothing to do with this?
