Hyperlinks.Add causes Word 2007 to crash


S

sana

Can anyone tell why does Word 2007 crashes when I run this macro?
================================================================

Sub Test1()

Dim wordDoc As Word.Document
Set wordDoc = ActiveDocument

Dim str As String
str = "Hyperlink"
Dim strText As String
strText = "DisplayText"

Dim Hyp As Word.Hyperlinks
Set Hyp = wordDoc.Hyperlinks

Dim sel As Word.Selection
Set sel = Word.Selection

sel.TypeText Text:=" "
Word.ActiveDocument.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=sel.Range, Address:= _
str, SubAddress:="", ScreenTip:="", TextToDisplay:=strText
End Sub


==================================================================

If I remove the optional parameter
TextToDisplay:=strText
from the statement

Word.ActiveDocument.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=sel.Range, Address:= _
str, SubAddress:="", ScreenTip:="", TextToDisplay:=strText
It works fine!


Thanks in advance,

Don't know but you can avoid the crash by using

Dim strText

or

Dim strText As Variant

instead of

Dim strText As String
