Understanding Office Code: Programmatic Object Models

To take full advantage of the ways you can automate Microsoft Office features by writing code, you need to understand the Office programmatic object models. An object model describes the relationships between application features that can be extended or automated using code. These features are exposed through type libraries, which are contained in files such as a dynamic-link library (DLL) files, executable (EXE) files, object library files (files with the extension .olb), or type library files (files with the extension .tlb). Some common type libraries are the Microsoft Excel Type Library (contained in the file Excel.exe) and the Microsoft Access Object Library (contained in the file Msacc.olb).

Object models include several components, namely classes (which include objects, collections, and types) and members (which include properties, methods, events, and constants).
