Run-time error 5941 only in the Word templates

Run-time error 5941 only in the Word templates

Run-time error 5941 only in the Word templates

I have been trying to get this Macro to work but I have had no luck.
It works fine, but when I put my word file with the macro in "My templates" it shows me an error:
Run-time error 5941
The request member of the collection does not exist.

The error occurs in this line:
For Each Zelle In ActiveDocument.Tables(1).Rows(cboAOrt.ListIndex + 2).Cells

Dim Zelle As Cell
Dim Bereich As Range

  I = 0
  If cboAOrt.ListIndex = -1 Then cboAOrt.ListIndex = 0
  For Each Zelle In ActiveDocument.Tables(1).Rows(cboAOrt.ListIndex + 2).Cells
    Set Bereich = ActiveDocument.Range(Start:=Zelle.Range.Start, End:=Zelle.Range.End - 1)
    Select Case I
    Case 0
      Nr = 1
      Zweigstelle = Bereich.Text
    Case 1
      Strasse = Bereich.Text
    Case 2
      Ort = Bereich.Text
    Case 3
      Telefon = Bereich.Text
    Case 4
      Telefax = Bereich.Text
    Case 5
      Mail = Bereich.Text
    Case 6
      Name = Bereich.Text
    Case 7
      Titel = Bereich.Text
    End Select
    I = I + 1
  Next Zelle

Has anybody any ideas why?

Thanks for any help

RE: Run-time error 5941 only in the Word templates

Thank you for your reply.
If someone has the same problem...

It seems that the macro could not start properly when I opened the file with the macro from "My templates". The 2nd docx file with the data could not be loaded.
So I opened the docx file with the data, whit a 2nd macro and it works.


Dim path As String
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    path = Options.DefaultFilePath(wdWorkgroupTemplatesPath)
    path = "C:\..........................."
    Documents.Open FileName:=path + "\data.docx", ReadOnly:=False
