[kind of SOLVED] Macro Errors - IndRepBaseTemplate.dot
had this problem for a while now and it's really starting to wind me up.
I use macros in my Individual Report templates to help with formatting issues. This works beautifully when running reports from SIMS, however when you try to export them, you get random errors about base functionality missing a reference (for instance, I get an error saying a reference to a function is missing on the Left$() function). The actual reference that is missing is to IndRepBaseTemplate.dot
In the past, this has been easily fixed by opening up the original individual report template. However, trying it out today (I believe it's the first time I've used it since the 7.140 update) this doesn't fix the issue.
Has anybody else had this problem and do you know how to fix it? If I copy IndRepBaseTemplate.dot to the folder containing my XML's, it does solve the problem but also massively slows the script down as Word saves the template every time and requires Word to have focus. I'm really hoping there's a way of programatically removing the reference!
EDIT: Sometimes just putting your frustration in to words helps! Removing references programatically worked, anybody else who's having this problem can find a solution here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308340
