I have Microsoft Office 2010 installed. I wanted to run a macro from Word and I got the error message shown below?
Please help me with an idea of what could be causing this error and how to solve it?
Run time error 5342
The specified data type is unavailable
MS Word Error Running a Macro
This particular error usually occurs when a .dll file is missing or unregistered. To fix this, try completing the following steps:
1. Open the Run prompt from the start menu.
2. Enter the following command: regsvr32 c:windowssystem32dllfile
3. Reboot your computer.
Another option is to download a registry scan tool and run it. You can get one from http://www.registry-scan.org/, for example.
