What Is Cross-Application Programming?

Cross-application programming refers to accessing one application's object model via another application's programming interface. For example, Microsoft FrontPage can access the object model of Microsoft Word to perform Word-specific manipulation of files in the FrontPage-based Web site. Likewise, the FrontPage 2000 OM can be accessed inside Microsoft Word.

All of the applications (as well as many other applications produced by Microsoft) contain the Visual Basic Editor (VBE). The VBE creates macros that automate each application's object model. The applications included in Microsoft Office 2000 premiere are Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, FrontPage, and Outlook. Each of these applications provides extensive object models in order to access their respective features.
