    Smile Run-time Error: '75'

    Hi All,

    I have developed an application using VB 6.0 which involves MS Office Automation. I have written the code to select an Excel file from common dialog box. The Application has been distributed in the form of Executable files.

    It is working absolutely fine in most of the systems, but in some systems during the file selection it throws the below error:

    Run-time Error: '75' - The specified path/file name cannot be accessed or is invalid. I cannot figure out the reason why it is throwing such error?

    I request you guys to help me in this.

    I am looking forward to your reply with interest!

    I think you are looking for a general answer to a specific question.

    You said that your code is working fine except in some systems.

    That means that you don't need to look at your code. That is working fine.

    You need to look at the systems where your code isn't working.

    You need to get SPECIFIC information for folks for whom this is not working.

    What are they trying to access?
    Do they have the proper permissions to access it?
    Is what they are trying to access valid at the time they are trying to access it?

    I can't answer those questions, and neither can anyone else, including you.

    The only person that can answer those questions is the person that is having the problem.

    Re: Run-time Error: '75'

    This error occures when the Program does not have rights or access to a file. Often this is caused when a program is trying to access a network file it doesn't have proper access to either because of network privileges or something is blocking the program. This issue can also be caused when the file is being used by another program or is read-only.
