Default Macro Call from VFP

I'm running a Visual FoxPro (v.8) program that loads a CDR in Corel 11, changes some object colors, and saves it. Works great.
Now I want to save it as a JPEG and need to call it with a 'StructExportOptions' Structure, which VFP does not support. So, I wrote a Macro, stuck it in GlobalMacros and have tried to call it from the VFP program (BTW VFP is fully OLE compliant).

Here's the code:
* do the color change thing
objSheet = oCRL11.ActiveDocument.ActivePage.Shapes.Item(strOName)
objSheet.Fill.UniformColor.RGBAssign (intRed,intGreen,intBlue)
* now comes the error:

I get the old 'OLE error code 0x80004005: Unspecified Error' error.

Anybody have any clues here???

Thanks in advance

Default Re: Macro Call from VFP

First, why doesn't VFP support StructExportOptions?

Did you try it like this?

oStruct = oCRL11.CreateStructExportOptions

Second, does your macro have any parameters or return values? In other words, make sure you have all the parameters specified in call to GMSManager.RunMacro

Finally, macros are executed by VBA which is not loaded by default with CorelDRAW until you use some of VBA features in the UI. If you want to access any VBA functionality programmatically before VBA is loaded and initialized, it will fail.

You need to call Application.InitializeVBA method in your VFP program before you can use RunMacro...

This should help...

FYI - CreateStructExportOptions works perfect in VFP8.0

Whenever you need help with automation from within Visual FoxPro - do not hesitate to ask me.
I may say I have quite an experience with this kind of stuff.
