Hi. The following code is causing my system to crash. I can't work out why

Option Compare Database

Public Function Export_And_Email_Tables()

    Dim dbs As DAO.Database
    Dim tdf As DAO.TableDef
    Dim shell As Object
    Dim ZipFile As Variant
    Dim oFolder As String: oFolder = Environ("USERPROFILE") & "\Documents\ArmsTracker_Export"
    Dim oZipFile As String: oZipFile = oFolder & "\"
    If DirExists(oFolder) = False Then
        createNewDirectory (oFolder)
    End If
    InitializeZipFile (oZipFile)
    Set shell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
    ZipFile = oZipFile
    Set dbs = CurrentDb
    For Each tdf In dbs.TableDefs
        If Left(tdf.Name, 4) <> "MSYS" Then
            '/ output the table to a CSV file:
            DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, , tdf.Name, oFolder & "_" & tdf.Name & ".csv", True
            shell.namespace(ZipFile).copyhere (oFolder & "_" & tdf.Name & ".csv")
            Do Until shell.namespace(ZipFile).items.Count >= 1
                'Call gotosleep(100)
                 'Email one at a time
        End If
    Next tdf
    EmailZippedFile (oZipFile)
    Set shell = Nothing
    Set tdf = Nothing
    Set dbs = Nothing

End Function

Public Sub createNewDirectory(directoryName As String)
    If Not DirExists(directoryName) Then
        MkDir (directoryName)
    End If
End Sub
Function DirExists(DirName As String) As Boolean
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
    DirExists = GetAttr(DirName) And vbDirectory
End Function

Private Sub InitializeZipFile( _
  ZipFile As String _

    Dim intFile As Integer
      If Len(Dir(ZipFile)) > 0 Then
        Kill ZipFile
      End If
      intFile = FreeFile
      Open ZipFile For Output As #intFile
      Print #intFile, Chr$(80) & Chr$(75) & _
        Chr$(5) & Chr$(6) & String(18, 0)
      Close #intFile
End Sub

Function EmailZippedFile(ByVal oZipFile As String) As Boolean

On Error GoTo EH

    Dim oEmailTo As String
    oEmailTo = InputBox("Please enter email address", "Email Recipient(s)")

    Dim objOL As Object
    Set objOL = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Dim olMail As Object
    Set olMail = objOL.createitem(0)
    With olMail
          .To = oEmailTo
         '.to = ""
         '.to = ""
        .subject = "ArmsTracker Data"
        .attachments.Add (oZipFile)
        '.attachments.Add ("F:\Documents\TableDump\")
    End With
    Set olMail = Nothing
    Set objOL = Nothing
    MsgBox "Data Sent"
Exit Function


    MsgBox "Error sending Outlook message " & Err.Description

End Function
