 On Error GoTo ButtonErr 
 If OLE1.OLEType = acOLENone Then 
 ' No OLE object created. 
 ' Display Insert Object dialog box. 
 OLE1.Action = acOLEInsertObjDlg 
 End If 
 Exit Sub 
 
ButtonErr: 
 If Err = conUserCancelled Then ' Display message. 
 MsgBox "You clicked the Cancel button; " _ 
 & "no object was created." 
 End If 
 Resume Next 
End Sub
