Automate Microsoft Word using AppleScript and VBA
Authored by: Jon on Jul 08, '04 07:17:05AM

Well, for me ANY Applescript with the "do visual basic"-command fails! I always get the error message "Ambigous name was detected: TmpDDE" (or something like that - that was my translation from Swedish) - and the Applescript executing stops.

This happens in various versions of Word, up to Office X.
One strange thing is that I can use the record-function in Applescript in OS 9. This creates a Script with "do Visual Basic"-commands, and the script compiles fine. Still I get that error-message from Word when running the script!

Do anyone happen to know what this is all about?
