    Intellisense with referenced add-ins (2000 sp-3/ 98SE)

    I'm working in VBA, with a referenced add-in (just a template with macro code). The intellisense picks up the procedure prototypes OK, with a tooltip for arguments etc. but it doesn't seem to correct the case for me. For instance, if I call a procedure called MyProc() in the add-in, by typing "myproc", this will not be converted from lower case to its actual proper case. Can I rectify this, or is it a "feature"?

    Apparently, Microsoft didn't bother to implement this. Whether you want to call this a "feature" is up to you. I don't know of a way to modify this behavior.

    Thanks Hans. I just found it rather odd that the tooltip went to all the trouble of showing a nice declaration, but the extra "little bit" of work in preserving the string value of the procedure name was (apparently) overlooked. I guess it is a tongue-in-cheek "feature" then.
