How to find the properties and methods of an Office Application Automation Object by wgcs
Posted: 5 Apr 02

The MSDN Library is the best place to find the documentation for the object models for the Office Applications.
Excel Object Model: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/office97/html/output/F1/D3/S5A341.asp
Word object Model: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/office97/html/output/F1/D4/S5A856.asp
Access Object Model: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/office97/html/output/F1/D2/S5A021.asp
DAO Object Model: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/office97/html/output/F1/D2/S5A25F.asp
PowerPoint Object Model: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/office97/html/output/F1/D5/S5AE28.asp
Outlook Object Model: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/office97/html/output/F1/D5/S5B056.asp
(When doing automatic emailing, however, remember that not everybody uses Outlook; OutlookExpress is completely different, too.  MAPI is a more general way to send an email!)
MS Graph Object Model: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/shared/deeptree/asp/deeptree.asp?stcfg=/library/searchtabconfig.xml&dtcfg=/library/deeptreeconfig.xml&url=/library/en-us/office97/html/output/F1/D4/S5A856.asp?frame=true


Caution, though: The Object Models change slightly between versions of Office Applications: I usually code to the Office97 object model to try for best backward compatibility!
