Word: Dialog Box names for VBAJune 24, 2011
If you’re using VBA in Word, you may need to call or modify a dialog box and its settings.
The problem is finding out what all the dialog boxes are named, and what arguments they can take. Scrolling through a long list in the VBA editor is not for the faint-hearted! And the VBA Help isn’t very helpful.
However, you can find lists of all dialog boxes for Word 2007 and 2010 on the Microsoft website, along with the arguments you can use to get or set values:
- Word 2007 dialog boxes: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb214033.aspx
- Word 2010 dialog boxes: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff836540.aspx
If you need to reference these often, print out these lists.
