Last reviewed: November 12, 1998
The information in this article applies to:
You can use keywords to easily query for specific topics in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. This article contains a list of the keywords specifically for Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) and Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) articles. By using these keywords, you can quickly access common topics.
The keywords are grouped below under the following headings:
Keywords Used in Titles Keywords (General and Product-specific) Product-specific Keywords Additional Query Words
Keywords Used in Titles
When you query the Microsoft Knowledge Base, you may get multiple articles in the query results. To quickly identify which products an article applies to, we have added a product-specific prefix to the titles of articles that apply to Microsoft desktop applications, such as the Microsoft Office programs.
If an article is about a programming topic that applies to any product that supports VBA or VBScript, the title will contain one of the following prefixes:
VBA Articles that apply to multiple versions of VBA VBS Articles that apply to multiple versions of VBScript
If an article is about a programming topic that is specific to the interface or object model of a specific Microsoft product, the title will contain a prefix that designates that product.
ACC Articles that apply to multiple versions of Microsoft Access XL Articles that apply to multiple versions of Microsoft Excel FP Articles that apply to multiple versions of Microsoft FrontPage WD Articles that apply to multiple versions of Microsoft Word OL Articles that apply to multiple versions of Microsoft Outlook PPT Articles that apply to multiple versions of Microsoft PowerPoint
If an article applies to a single version of a Microsoft product, the version number also appears in the prefix. For example, WD97 is the prefix for articles that apply only to Word 97.
The following is a list of specific keywords used in VBA and VBScript articles.
