Excel Object Model:
Word object Model:
Access Object Model:
DAO Object Model:
PowerPoint Object Model:
Outlook Object Model:

MS Graph Object Model:

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!
