Well, we do occasionally get feedback on this tool (which is always appreciated!) and in all these years, we got two reports stating the tool didn’t work at all, showing an “Invalid Picure” error which effectively prevented the tool from working.
So this appears to be a rather obscure error.
Colin Delane was kind enough to help me troubleshoot this problem (as he was the one experiencing it).
After some detective work, we nailed down the problem to one particular commandbutton on the NM’s main form. This button has a picture (as the others on the top have too):
Screenshot of Name Manager buttons. I circled the offending button. Note that this button only shows in the FastExcel version of NM.
The odd thing is, that it appeared to be the format of the picture that was causing havoc.
Both Meta and BMP are OK (no error on user’s system), but when we loaded a GIF picture format, the error occured reproducably.
Has anyone seen this before?
