    Can anyone direct me to documentation on the differences, as far as vba and macros, between xl97 and xl2k?

    Hi

    Yes there r differences, lots but if on same OP and not heavy hardcore codes sholuld be OK is..

    Of cause E2000 has advances and new codes lines... nothing that should be to nasty thou:

    My suggest debug codes to test for the failed line and amend....

    BTW E2000 help files are better and worth heavy reading.....

    You Might try going into VBA Help and searching on "New Properties" to see if that's what you're looking for. There's a lot there.

    My experience is that most of my old xl95 & xl97 code runs in xl2000 fine, as they use the hidden objects, properties, methods. However writing new code in xl2000 requires a lot of care if writing for backward compatability. Most code is 'ambidextris' but there are a lot of commonly used methods & properties that, although documented as working the same, do not. xl97 has a lot of 'teething' problems I guess 'cos it was the first to use the common MSOffice VBA engine.

    These are some of the topics copied directly from xl2000 help.

    Hidden Objects
    Hidden Properties and Methods
    Language-Specific Properties, Methods, and Functions
    Methods with New, Changed, or Deleted Arguments
    New Events
    New Methods (Alphabetic List)
    New Methods (by Object)
    New Objects
    New Properties (Alphabetic List)
    New Properties (by Object)
