    Old object libraries


    I am developing internal software. Two of the computers use Office 97 and
    the rest Office 2000. How would I get my hands on that object library?

    Thanks...

    Re: Old object libraries

    You mean, to be able to pretend that you were controlling Word 2000 from VB
    when you only have Word 97. You can't without actually installing Word 2K.

    Re: Old object libraries


    No, I have the object libraries for Office 2k. I need the object libraries
    for Office 97. I know I could probable uninstall Office 2k and install Office
    97 and then reinstall Office 2k. But that sounds like to much work for something
    so simple. I'm not dealing with Word or Excell, I'm dealing with Outlook.
    Two of our computers use Outlook 97/98 to hold contacts. I need to be able
    to extract that information from those two computers as well as the rest.
    The software already works for Outlook 2000. But I also need it work for
    Outlook 97/98. Unless I add a reference to that object library, Outlook
    97/98 appears like it won't work with the software I wrote. Or will it,
    and if so what am I missing?

    Duane,
    You CANNOT (Repaet for Emphasis, CANNOT) have Outlokk 97 AND OUTLOOK 2000
    on the same machine, at the same time. the Installation of Outlook 2000
    will TOTALLY REMOVE the Outlook 97 installation. Why is that lone machine
    still on Office 97. Bring the odd-ball up to be compatible wiht the others.
    That is the only possibility. Sorry, but those are the rules for Outlook
    2000.

    Re: Old object libraries


    Arthur,
    Before I did a clean install with Windows2000 I had upgraded from Office
    97 to Office 2000, and I still had the Office 97 Object libraries to add
    references to. I know you can't have both versions of Outlook running on
    the same machine. But I cannot see not having the two seperate object libraries
    on the same machine. The odd balls that are using the old version refuse
    to upgrade (old sales man that hate change). I'm sure the company would
    like them to change as they have already paid for the licences for their
    computers. Oh well, I will let management fight this out with those individuals.
    Without the software I did, they can't do their jobs properly. :-)

    Personnally I would rather have them upgrade as Office 2000 is amazing.

    Thanks away...
    Duane...

    Re: Old object libraries

    Depending on what it is you are doing you may be able to use late binding
    and then you would not need a reference to either object library.

    Re: Old object libraries

    Hi Duane,

    When using CreateObject to establish your link to Word, instead of using
    "Word.Application", use "Word.Application.8" for Word 97 or
    "Word.Application.9" for Word 2K.
