I'm struggling with a problem I cannot resolve. Irrespective of the language version of office when importing files into a table the errortable is called 'table_importerrors' on an english OS and 'table_importfouten' on a dutch OS. How to detect the language version of the OS. 'system.designatedlanguage' gives an activex cannot create object error, when first opening an office application (set MyApp = createobject("Word.Application") it works, but gives me the language of the office application, not of the OS. What am i doiing wrong?
