    I dunno. I'm guessing your .frm file is corrupt. Again, I just did a test case of importing a .frm file from Project 2003 to Project 2010 without problems.

    Actually I never work with .frm or .bas files. I move the items I need, (i.e. modules and forms), to a blank Project file and then drag and drop that file to one of my other virtual machines or to send to a user. But of course, if you no longer have access to the Project version that created the userform and only have the .frm itself, the process I use won't work for you.

  • WLID1966,

    Yes. Did you try it? If so, what happened?

    I just did a test import of a .bas file which as I recall was created in Project 2003 or Project 2007, (at any rate, in an earlier version than Project 2010 and later), into Project 2010. It imported without issues.

    For reference, you will see the imported files appear in the Modules folder of your Global directory when viewed via the Project Explorer in the VB Editor.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi john;

    Eventually, I succeeded to import a .bas file.

    But for the .frm files i got the errors :

    1. Error during load
    2. error not specified
    3. Out of memory
