I use Microsoft Word97 as a child application. In the middle of typing, I get the message 'Runtime Error 70. Permission denied.' What would cause this?

This is probably a Visual Basic for Applications error. I'd check the code in your VBA application or module that is calling upon Word. Maybe its a keyboard buffer overrun error?

Good luck.

Run-time error '70' is typically the result of a security or permissions issue.
The following is a list of possible causes of run-time error 70 but is by no
means a complete or definitive list.

DCOM Is Not Enabled

If the Server machine doesnot have DCOM enabled, client machines will receive
run-time error 70 when attempting to access the server. This scenario applies to
Windows 2000, Windows NT, Windows 98, and Windows 95 servers:

1. On the Server machine, run DCOM Config (DCOMCNFG.EXE).
2. Choose the Default Properties tab.
3. Ensure that Enable Distributed COM on this computer is checked. This value is
stored in the Windows Registry at the following location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE

The Client User Does Not Have Sufficient Permissions

If the client user does not have the correct permissions, access to the DCOM
Server can be denied. There are several steps to take in order to ensure your
client has valid privileges.

If the Server is Windows 95 or Windows 98:
1. Run DCOM Config.
2. Select the DCOM Server application from the list of available applications.
3. Select the Properties button, or double-click the DCOM Server application in the list.

4. Test the server with "Default Access Permissions."

If run-time error '70' still occurs, the default access permissions are restricting your user. If this is the case, then modify the Default Access Permissions from the Default Security tab in DCOM Config. Grant theclient user access permissions.

If run-time error '70' does not occur running with default access permissions, it is likely that the custom access permissions are restricting your client from accessing the DCOM Server. Choose custom access permissions and select the Edit button. Grant the client user access permissions.

1. Run DCOM Config.
2. Select the DCOM Server application from the list of available applications.
3. Select the Properties button, or double-click the DCOM Server application in the list.
4. Test theserver with "Default Access Permissions," "Default Launch Permissions," and "Custom Configuration Permissions."

If run-time error '70' still occurs, it is likely that the default access permissions are restricting your user. If this is the case, modify the Default Access Permissions from the Default Security tab in DCOM Config.

If run-time error '70' does not occur, it is likely that the custom access permissions are restricting your client from accessing the DCOM Server.
Choose to use Custom access permissions and choose the Edit button. Grant the client user account access permissions, or grant a group the client user belongs to access permissions.
