OLE Automation: Specifying a Command Button from Visual Basic
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c
- Microsoft Word for Windows, version 7.0
Using a Microsoft Visual Basic application, it is possible to run a WordBasic instruction with command button parameters. Boolean "true" and "false" values are used to specify command buttons.
ToolsMacro .Name = "MacroName", .Run
To use this instruction in a Visual Basic procedure, you would write:
WordObj.ToolsMacro "MacroName", True
The "True" value is the Visual Basic equivalent to choosing/specifying the Run command button. You can use the "False" value or omit a command button argument to not choose a command button. When calling WordBasic instructions from Visual Basic you must identify WordBasic arguments by position using commas as placeholders.
The following Visual Basic procedure opens the Test macro for editing (the equivalent of ToolsMacro .Name = "Test", .Edit).

Sub Command1_Click () Dim WordObj As Object Set WordObj = CreateObject("Word.Basic") WordObj.ToolsMacro "Test", , True End Sub
If you remove the comma before True, the instruction will run the Test macro. For example:
WordObj.ToolsMacro "Test", True
