hi, can someone help me with this runtime error?

I'm a beginner programmer and I'm trying to make a paste "bot" (I know it's not a bot but I digress). The error code that comes up is error 800A01A8. I have researched about it and all the causes for it (that I have found) I have not done. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone can help. Thanks!
WScript.Sleep 5000
WshShell.Sendkeys "^v"
WScript.Sleep 2000
WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}"
WScript.Sleep 2000
(repeats the code, not including the first sleep line lots of times)

RE: hi, can someone help me with this runtime error?

Just insert

CODE -->

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 

at the beginning of your code
