I am an end-user and the system I am using is giving error "name not found calling external object function createitem at line 940 in clicked event of object. I know we are using PowerBuilder and I am just trying to understanding why we are getting this issue. Does this have something to do with calling another application. As I am being told this has to do with Outlook.

Chris,

I understand as end-user I can't solve the problem. I was trying to determine what would be causing this issue as development is looking into this matter to find a solution. Is there any know issues with PB using Outlook to send emails within a Citrix environment.

Hi Krista;

This is a programming error and one that you cannot diagnose as the application user. You would need to get a PB developer involved to get to the bottom of this issue.

There are many ways (techniques) that a PB application can interface with MS-Outlook. It also depends on the PB version you are using as well. So its really hard to do anything useful unless your looking at the actual PB code itself. I can fully understand & appreciate your frustrations though.

Maybe the citrix installation is missing Outlook?
