Don't know if you can help me but struggling, so here goes.

Trying to control Labelling software BarTender 6 from VEE5.01 preferably
using its ActiveX automation facility.

If I run the attached  BTPrint1.vee file  , this loads the BarTender
application OK but when I try to open the file Demo.btw  I get Vee error (
"625 Illegal escape sequence"). I have included the ActiveX commands
recommended for use in VB from the BarTender HELP, in NotePad.


IF I run the Attached BTPrint2.vee file to try to do the above using command
line format, the application opens and loads the file OK but the x command
does not close it down.

Any ideas. I know its probably a bit obscure but I am fumbling in the dark
here.

Only really used ActiveX before with Excel and must admit I have cribbed
quite a bit from examples.

Seagull Scientific who produce BarTender don't have any help for .Vee users.

King regards,
