WD: View Dialog Tab Appears with Invalid ToolsOptions Command
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c
- Microsoft Word for Windows, version 7.0
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, version 6.0
If you run the ToolsOptions command in a WordBasic macro and use an invalid value for the .Tab argument, Microsoft Word does not display an error message. Instead, Word opens the View tab in the Tools Options dialog box.
Assign a valid value to the .Tab argument (that is, a value from 0 through 11).
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of Microsoft Word listed above. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
The ToolsOptions command uses the following syntax:
ToolsOptions .Tab = <NN>
<NN> is a value from 0 (zero) through 11, corresponding to the 12 dialog tabs in the Tools Options dialog box. Any number less than 0 or greater than 11 is invalid.
