Problem with Project Events

Hi,

Using Project 2000 Standard, I'm trying to set task fields (one text
and one flag) whenever a task is changed or inserted, so am using the
ProjectBeforeTaskChange event.

I've set this up following the help text, so I have:

Created a new class module called EventClassModule, containing:

Public WithEvents App As Application

I'm connecting to this in my project using:

Dim X as New EventClassModule

Sub InitializeApp()
Set X.App=Application
End Sub

I call InitializeApp from the Project_Open event.

I then want to store the project's title in each new task's Text10
field, so use the following:

Private Sub App_ProjectBeforeTaskChange(ByVal tsk As Task, ByVal Field
As PjField, ByVal NewVal As Variant, Cancel As Boolean)

If Field=pjTaskName Then

tsk.Text10 = ActiveProject.BuiltinDocumentProperties("Title")

End If

End Sub

This works fine. I then want to flag the task as a milestone if it
appears in a certain section of the plan, so have amended the above
to:

Private Sub App_ProjectBeforeTaskChange(ByVal tsk As Task, ByVal Field
As PjField, ByVal NewVal As Variant, Cancel As Boolean)

If Field = pjTaskName And (tsk.OutlineParent.Name = "Work Package
Outputs (Deliverables)") Then
tsk.Milestone = "Yes"

Else

tsk.Text10 = ActiveProject.BuiltinDocumentProperties("Title")

End If
End Sub

This causes the follwoing behaviour:

1. If I stick to adding and changing tasks, everything works fine and
does what I want.
2. As soon as I do anthing else, like try to change the project's
properties or set an option, Project crashes. No errors, no nothing -
it just closes completely with no warning.

I assume I'm doing something really stupid? Can anyone please put me
right?

Many thanks in advance,

Matt
