Objects, Properties, and Methods

The Application Object

The Application object is the highest-level object, and it relates to Word itself. Properties of the Application object typically set or return information that affects any particular file or document, or Word itself. For example, the ActivePrinter property returns (or sets) the name of the printer. The ScreenUpdating property turns the screen refresh off or on. The StatusBar property sets messages in the status bar:

MsgBox "The active printer is " & Application.ActivePrinter
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.StatusBar = "Reading Data..."
