Default Crash on every 2nd run

Chritof -
I've had an identical problem with Excel opened from
Outlook. Sue Mosher sent me back the reply below. It
might help.

-----Original Message-----
The previuous message got fired too quickly. Another try:

I get the following behaviour:

In a macro, I open a word doc, and close it again with
the following code:

'open word document
Dim infoDocument As Object
Set infoDocument = CreateObject("Word.Basic")
On Error Resume Next
Set infoDocument = Word.Documents.Open(fileAddress,0,
True, False)

If Err.Number = 0 Then

'do some stuff

end if

'Close the document
If Word.Documents.Count = 0 Then
End If

The problem is now that the first time after the excel
file is opened, the macro works fine. From the second
time on, it stops working with the following error:
'The remote server machine does not exsist or is
unavailable. From VBAProject'

Can anybody explain/improve my code.
