A lot of older tables were written differently for the section of the script that loads the VBS specific file. You can usually fix the problem by doing the following:

Open the table script (for the table that gives you a warning message) and look for this line:

ExecuteGlobal CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject").OpenTextFile(VBSfile, 1).ReadAll


Replace it with this line:

ExecuteGlobal GetTextFile(VBSFile)

Save the change and run the table.

wtiger, I have that problem frequently because I like to keep the scripts in the scripts folder - it's just neater. Your solution finds the scripts there, so I change a lot of my tables that way. I've never seen the either method cause trouble if the scripts are in the tables folder though, so if you drop the scripts in the tables folder it should work regardless.

Am I wrong?

No, thats correct.

Tables folder always works, but Scripts folder only works with the line posted by wtiger. I dont exactly know why that is but thats how its been ever since i started to use VP/VPM. Probably a folder priority thing that has to do with how VBasic looks for files or something like that,...

Yeah, you are correct. I am like you, I prefer to have the scripts in the scripts folder too.
