Using the Object Browser

Learning the nuances of VBA can be as difficult as learning the details of any human language. Fortunately, VBA includes an extremely thorough dictionary that lists all valid commands. Granted, the dictionary doesn't have descriptions of what all those commands mean, but you can often deduce those meanings by seeing the commands themselves.

Microsoft calls the giant dictionary an object browser, and it opens up the entire world of object models—not just the ones for Office and your favored variety of VBA, but for any program that can be called from VBA, using the CreateObject() function.
