    Could you post a screenshot of the error message, as well as the list of companies in the Pastel menu?

    As soon as you try to open the company it throws out the run time error 5 and kicks you out of pastel. I can't seem to upload the screenshot, but it says Run time error 5: invalid procedure call or arguement

    How have you named the company folder?

    If the company folder name exceeds 8 characters or includes special characters, you will probably get that error.
