VBA automation of iLogic External Rule Fails.


Error says cannot find the External Rule in the current Document.

Is there some way I can tell the iLogicAuto.Getrule(doc, "RunDll_Test") method that the rule is external and not inside the current document?

The GetRule function will only work on internal rules.

Do you want to run the external rule?  If so, use the function:

iLogicAuto.RunExternalRule(doc, fileName)

fileName can be a relative or absolute path name.
