    [VBScript] PageOrientation of document

    Cookie4ddict Level 1

      Hi everybody!

       

      Before I start let me tell you, I used the search function but for some reason it didn't do as I know it. All the results I got linked to the forum of InDesign Scripting and not to a single thread.

       

      Now to my problem. I'm trying to do a VB within Access which creates a new InDesign-Document. I need a document with landscape orientation. Unfortunately Access is telling me, it needs an object and I don't understand why it is telling me that.

       

      Here's the little piece of code:

       

      1 Set appInDesign = CreateObject("InDesign.Application")
      2 Set newDocument = appInDesign.Documents.Add
      3 newDocument.DocumentPreferences.PageOrientation = idPageOrientation.idLandscape
      

       

      In line 3 it stops and tells me: "Object needed"

       

      Anybody any suggestions what I did wrong?

       

      Regards,

       

      Steffi
