Referencing an Object
This is a basic tutorial to explain how you can harness the power of your Office applications to add some 'panache' to your own Visual Basic Project.
In the next few articles I will be explaining how you can instance various classes into your Visual Basic Projects which can incorporate the functionality of Word, Excel, Access and many other applications into your projects.
This article will deal with finding a class, referencing it to your project and finally a quick discussion on various binding methods. Subsequent articles will deal with the applications that make up the Office product range. Throughout this series I will explain how to interact with Office 97. The code is also compatible with Office 2000, the latest version of the suite.
