Hi Amit,

Something is going wrong on Open. Maybe there is no such function or the function may not work for some reasons.

You may try to use TRY-CATCH to catch the OLERuntimeError exception. Maybe there are more information about the error in the "Description" property of the exception.

Do you need to initialize the ole object first in order to access the fucntions?

As Amit says use OLERuntimeError exception to get more information.
