Word 2000 VBA Programmer's Referenceby MACKENZIE, Felipe Martins
Word 2000 is an important part of the Office 2000 program suite, and will be available in the Premium, Professional, Standard and Small Business editions of Office 2000. Word has traditionally been the Office suite wordprocessor program par excellence. It still remains that way, but with Office 2000 there is a strong emphasis on between-application automation, ease of use, and the smart new bells and whistles that 2000 brings. Using VBA (Visual Basic for Applications), the user can program his or her own programs in what is essentially a subset of the Visual Basic programming languages. This is neat because it allows you to automate a lot of the word processing tasks performed daily, one press of a button can link Excel spreadsheets into Word documents, prepare chapters for layout at Wrox Press, etc. This book presents a full reference to the Word object model, which is essentially the object oriented system of organizing the functional capacities that make up the Word program. There will be a short introduction to VBA itself, and the rest of the book will document aspects of programming Word through that object model. This book will be in three broad sections: the first part introduces Word and VBA; the second offers interesting, thematic discussions of some of the capacities available to Word VBA. The third and final part offers a full reference to the object model of Word.
