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.
