Execute geoprocessor problem to create a fishnet

Discussion created by rorylh on Jul 22, 2013
Hello everybody,

I'm sorry, I just begin to program with ArcObjects in VB.Net (ArcGIS 10) and maybe this question have been already asked.
I try to create a fishnet by code but I have a problem. The user gives the cell size and the layer in enter. With these data, I define the envelope, top, bottom, left, right, number of rows and number of columns, etc.
Nevertheless, I have a error message : "Une erreur HRESULT E_FAIL a été retournée à partir d'un appel à un composant COM."

Can you help ? Have you an idea to solve the problem ? This is probably an error in code but I don't see where...

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Best regards,
