    I'm not sure this is the correct forum for this question. If not, could
    someone direct me to a more appropriate one?

    The following bit of code is from a PowerBuilder script. It has worked
    through many releases of Powerbuilder at many sites and through many Windows
    releases. We had to add a parameter when Word 11 was released. It's
    failing now with the error below. The difference that I'm aware of is that
    Word 14 is running in that environment. The Word 2010 documentation online
    shows the same parameters that I'm using here. I doubt that Word 14 changed
    them and then Word 2010 changed them back. Right? Any ideas about what to
    look for? In particular, is the value 8 for the last parameter, which is
    wdMergeSubTypeWord2000 still appropriate? I didn't write this code and
    really don't know what that means. Someone told me to set that param to 8
    when we had to handle Word 11.

    TIA
