Retreiving Desktop Folder in Word

spindlejspindlej Member Posts: 70
I am trying to declare the following function so that i can eventually retreive the path to the current user's desktop on a Win2000 machine.

Public Declare Function GetSpecialFolderLocation Lib "Shell32" (ByVal hwndOwner As Long, ByVal nFolder As SpecialFolderIDs, ByRef pIdl As Long) As Long

However, when I try to copile the code, I get a message "User-Defined type not defined". I am assuming that I need to create a reference to a library in order for these functions to work. Does anyone know the library I need to reference within Word?

Thanks in advance.
