VBA ByRef error

Anyone know why the code below doesn't work?
I have an Excel workbook with a form and a module.
The form contains a button that contains:
Application.Run "startExport"

In the module I have:
Private Sub startExport()
    Dim thePath, theFile As String
   
    thePath = Application.ThisWorkbook.Path
    theFile = Application.ThisWorkbook.Path & "\" & frmProject.txtProject & "Import.csv"
   
    writeProjectLine thePath, theFile
End Sub

The code gives a "ByRef argument type mismatch" error and highlights the variable "thePath" that is shown in bold above.

What is  frmProject.txtProject? If it is folder than the "\" is needed to get to csv file?

Can you post the  code of the writeProjectLine  sub? Or excel?

You may have found a workaround but note that when you do

Dim thePath, theFile As String

that only theFile is a string. thePath remains as a Variant and that may be your problem.
