Runtime error when clicking index in Frame & OCM Categories Chooser

Data Notebook 1.1 and 1.0

Problem: In the Frame & OCM Categories Chooser, if you select More>> and then go to the right pane and click Index, you might get a dialog with the following error message:

Error: A runtime error has occurred. Do you wish to Debug?
Line: 5
Error: Object Expected

Explanation: Internet Explorer is supposed to have the Microsoft Scripting engine installed automatically. However, in at least one case, either it was not installed, or something was wrong with the script engine that caused this problem.

Solution: Install the correct version of Windows Script 5.6 for your operating system.


  1. Click the appropriate link to install Windows Script 5.6 for your operating system.
  2. When the File Download dialog box opens, click Open and follow the instructions.
