    PDF & Outlook Automation Problems in Excel for Mac - Run-time error 75

    Hi Everyone,

    I have just 'upgraded' to a MacBook Air 2018 from my Windows 10 PC. All my macros are written just for windows.

    I have found the following Ron de Bruin article, which has been very helpful so far:

    https://www.rondebruin.nl/mac/macmai...utlook2016.htm

    However, I have run into a problem with the 'Test Code in the Workbooks' section about half-way through the article, specifically when testing with the MacOutlookWithExcel2016PDF.xlsm workbook.

    When I run the macro which is designed to test-create a PDF and attach it to an email in Outlook, I get the following error:

    Run-time error '75': Path/File access error

    Can anyone help me with this? I have been trying for hours without success, but I am thinking/hoping that this might be a common problem for users attempting to create PDFs using VBA??

    Any advice or tips appreciated, aside from 'get rid of the mac'! It was a custom build and I can't send it back (I checked).....

    Andy

    First question, did you copy the script file as specified?

    Which line causes the error?

    (I guess you don't have a copy of Windows and Excel that you can set up either with Boot Camp or a VM program like VirtualBox or Parallels?)

    Thanks for your reply. given the issues I encountered trying to reconfigure everything for MacOS, I decided to Boot Camp the machine and just stick with Windows 10.
