When you programmatically create a Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) document by using the Htmlconvert function, you may receive one of the following error messages:

The export could be completed. The entry "0" of the array that you defined might not be an object.


Run-time error '9':
Subscript out of range


This error occurs if you specify the setting Option Base 1 in the module sheet.

NOTE: The array of objects that you pass to the Htmlconvert function must begin with element 0.


To work around the problem, use either of the following methods:

  • Declare the array variable that you want to pass to the Htmlconvert unction to begin with item 0.

    For example, if an array variable is ObjToConvert, and you want to initialize the array to hold two items, use a Dim statement similar to the following:

          Dim ObjToConvert(0 to 1) As Variant

    When you assign the appropriate objects to this array, you must begin with element 0 of the array. -or-

  • Remove the Option Base 1 setting from the module sheet.

    NOTE: If you use this workaround, you must redimension the arrays in the macro.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.
