This support note applies to:

  • AE Reporter (NZ)
  • AE Reporter (AU)
Article ID: 35441

When you access MYOB Accountants Enterprise (AE) Reporter on a Windows 7 workstation you may experience the error:

"Run-time error '-2147418105 (80010007)':
Automation error. The callee (server [not server application]) is not available and disappeared; all connections are invalid. The call may have been executed."

This can occur when the text size is set to medium.

To fix this issue, set the text size to Small or Smaller.

This error can also be caused by default dates in Practice Level Non Transaction Data.  You need to review the date fields in DB.#EntityDetails.ClientDetails and remove any default values for the following fields:

  • YearStartDate;
  • YearEndDate;
  • PeriodStartDate;
  • PeriodEndDate.

MYOB is investigating this issue.

To set the text size
  1. Right-click on the Windows Desktop and select Personalize. The Personalization window opens.
  2. Click Display. The Display window opens showing 3 options, Smaller, Medium, Larger.
  3. Select Smaller and click Apply. The message "You must log off your computer to apply these changes" appears.
  4. Click the required option. The settings are updated and will take effect after you next log off the pc.

    If Smaller is already selected, select Medium and log off, then repeat these steps and reselect Smaller.
