A posting titled SendObject stopped responding caught my attention. in it Rick stated “I finally ran the microsoft office diagnostics and it found one error and repaired it. “ You can find Microsoft Office Diagnostics on your Windows XP Programs menu at Windows Office <inset year here> menu >> Microsoft Office Tools. Or search for it in Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Thanks to Rick for posting his experience. I also thank Len Hannam of the Visual Basic and Developers user group in Edmonton for mentioning this tool a while back. I must confess I never noticed it before.
