Re: Visual Basic error - Individual List

Back in August, there was a string of messages on this same subject. One of the messages gave this explanation:

Macros are created via DDE to do the work needed to set up the report. If a report is aborted, sometimes the macro "hangs around", and the next time you try to use that function in UFT, it tries to make the macro again, which fails since a copy already exists. (It expects to make the macro every time, and delete it when done). It's not clear if this is UFTs fault or not, but here's how to fix it, thanks to our friends at Microsoft:

Delete the Tmpdde Macro

You may be able to resolve this problem if you delete the Tmpdde macro from the Microsoft Word global template ( To do this, use the following steps:

Start Microsoft Word. On the Tools menu, point to Macro, and then click Macros.

Select any macro with the name Tmpdde and click Delete. Click Yes to confirm that you want to delete the macro.

Hope this helps.
