When you use the Visual Basic for Applications GetSpellingSuggestions method, you may receive one of the following errors:

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.

When you click Details, you will receive the following error message:

WINWORD caused an invalid page fault in module WINWORD.exe at 0137:3000b8bb


Run-time error '-2147417851(80010105)':
Method 'GetSpellingSuggestions' of Object '_Application' failed


You may be calling the Visual Basic for Applications GetSpellingSuggestions method when there are no documents open in Word.


To work around this problem, make sure there is a document open in Word before using the Visual Basic for Applications GetSpellingSuggestions method.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
