Why would I get a Run-time error '462':

The sub-text in the error dialogue says:

The remote server machine does not exist or is unavailable

 

I am trying to use the Microsoft Word spell-check engine to check the spelling in a user-entry field on a user form in a VBA macro.  It works fine as long as I manually launch Word before running my macro, but it then proceeds to launch a second Word window to do the operation anyway.

 

The portion of the code where it fails is very simple:

 

Public swApp As Object

Public mwApp As Object

 

Sub main()

 

Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

Set mwApp = Word.Application

 

UserForm1.Show

End Sub

 

When it fails, it stops on the line to create the mwApp object.  In other words, it never gets to the UserForm1 code.

 

Any ideas?
