    Downloadable Object model chart (2k/xp)

    Does anyone know of any freely downloadable object model charts for Office 2k and/or xp? I'm mostly interested in Access, but the rest of it would be useful as well.

    Cheers

    Jim,

    Looks like you can get these on the MSDN site - the 2000 ones here and the XP ones here.

    Yeah, I knew about those, actually. I suppose I'm being fussy, but I was looking for something a little better. I got hold of a very comprehensive map for Outlook last year, but I can't recall where from. As I said, it's the Access one I'm most interested in.

    Thanks for the help.

    You'll have to be more specific than just "object model". Access has several, including DAO and ADO.

    I'm a slacker. Yeah, sorry. I should have made sure my brain was working before I started writing. Actually, I'm after both the DAO and ADO models for different reasons. Can you point me at something?

    Thanks everyone for all the help.

    What's wrong with the models in on-line help? I prefer dealing with object models in hunks rather than a huge chart that I get lost in. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Re: Downloadable Object model chart (2k/xp)

    Your response prompted me to look at the XP help - it seems they've scattered the object model in a bunch of different places. I tried a search on "object model" and got nothing in either the Access or the VBA help. Is it my perception, or is the help slowing getting unusable?

    Yes, the help is becoming unusable. I think the "webby", MSDN help is even worse than the regular HTML help. MSDN itself seems to have become nearly unusable in my view. It has a great deal of "stuff" in it, but it is nearly impossible to find anything.

    As far as the object model goes, for ADO, start with the connection object. You can drill down through the object model from there. I can't seem to get any help in the DAO objects but I don't know whether my Office installation has gotten twitchy again or the information is simply not there. I suspect the former. If it were working, I would start with the Database object and drill down from there.

    Re: Downloadable Object model chart (2k/xp)

    VBA Help in Word 10 has gotten worse.

    In both Word 8 and Word 9 VBA Help, the data type was stated for the Type Property. In Word 10, the data type is not specified.

    Other examples of the data type not being specified in Help in Word 10 are the RelativeVerticalPosition Property and the RelativeHorizontalPosition Property.

    Even if there is a statement somewhere in Help that states that ALL such values are Long type, how is one supposed top find such a statement?

    If by "object model" you mean the map that shows each object and how it relates to the application, MS-Office 2000 Developer's edition came with a booklit that has all these maps for all the MS-Office applications. I think the part number for that document is: <font color=red> X03-89040</font color=red>. , and the document number is <font color=red> DTX03-89040-0299 </font color=red>. the title of this booklit is:

    <font color=red> "Microsoft Office 2000 Object Model Guide"</font color=red>. I think you can order it from MS-press or the fullfillment department of MS.
