Block Reference Problem

Hi all,

Please, can anyone help?? I am trying to insert new block reference to my drawing but an error appears, tells:
"Opearation is not valid due to the current state of the object"

the following is my code:

Database db = HostApplicationServices.WorkingDatabase;
Editor ed = Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument.Editor;
using(Transaction trans = db.TransactionManager.StartTransaction())
PromptPointOptions Pos = new PromptPointOptions("Enter Display Position");
Pos.AllowNone = false;
PromptPointResult PosRes = ed.GetPoint(Pos);
if( PosRes.Status != PromptStatus.OK )
MessageBox.Show("The process is canceled.");

and this is the code of CreateBlockRef:

Database db = HostApplicationServices.WorkingDatabase;
Transaction trans = db.TransactionManager.StartTransaction();
using(DocumentLock docLock=AcadAPP.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument.LockDocument())
The error is in this Line>>>>>>>>>>BlockTable bt= (BlockTable)trans.GetObject(db.BlockTableId, OpenMode.ForWrite);
BlockTableRecord btr = (BlockTableRecord)trans.GetObject(bt[BlockTableRecord.ModelSpace], OpenMode.ForWrite);
BlockReference br = new BlockReference(pos, CreateDefinition(i));
AttributeReference attRef = new AttributeReference();

BlockTableRecord dsBtr = (BlockTableRecord)trans.GetObject(bt[MyBlockName], OpenMode.ForRead);
ObjectId layerID = CreateLayer(LayerName);

foreach(ObjectId id in dsBtr )
Entity ent = (Entity)trans.GetObject(id, OpenMode.ForRead, false);
if( ent.GetType().FullName.Equals("Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices.AttributeDefinition") )
AttributeDefinition attDef = (AttributeDefinition)ent;
attRef.Position = new Point3d(attDef.Position.X + br.Position.X,attDef.Position.Y + br.Position.Y,attDef.Position.Z + br.Position.Z);
attRef.Height = attDef.Height;
attRef.Rotation = attDef.Rotation;
attRef.Tag = attDef.Tag;
attRef.TextString = MyText;



btr.AppendEntity(br); br.AttributeCollection.AppendAttribute(attRef);
trans.AddNewlyCreatedDBObject(attRef, true);
trans.AddNewlyCreatedDBObject(br, true); trans.Commit();
return br.ObjectId;

BTW, I am using Acad2006, vs2003

Thanks in advance
