SYMPTOMS

If the "at" symbol ("@") is in the name of your computer, you may receive the following error message when running a manually written MSGraph program:
OLE error code 0x80080005 Server execution failed

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, the "at" symbol ("@") must be removed from the name of the computer as follows:

  2. Click the Identification tab.
  3. In the Computer Name box, remove the "at" symbol ("@") from the name of the computer.

  5. Run the Graph1.prg program, located in the MORE INFORMATION section below, from the Command window.
The MSGraph Bar chart appears on the screen.
