Just a side note, this worked, except the values 999,999 put slots way out on the sides of the drawings, which gets to be a pain every time you zoom extents.

Having an odd problem with this program again. I had manually entered about a dozen different sizes for Panduit without any info for slots and such and it worked great until yesterday when I tried to enter info to get slots drawn too. Now none of the panduit entries work, but the existing din rail entries work just fine. The error I get is:

>>>DIN Rail Generator

>>>File: S:\Shared\ELEC\ACADE\Support\wddinrl.xls

>>>Specify insertion point of rail:
>>>Specify end point of rail:
>>>Error: bad argument type: numberp: nil

As a result, I came here and found this post. From here I copied and pasted Nates three comma delimited entries for Panduit into my existing spreadsheet. I left my entries in and tried inserting Nates panduit. They worked fine though I did not get any slots still. I then tried my panduit entries and got the same error.

So, I restored my original wddinrl.xls file and put Nates three entries back in. Tested it and all of the entries worked except that I still do not get slots on Panduit.

Any ideas on what I broke or how I can the slots to show up? My spreadsheet is zipped and attached.
