Word 97

The object library or type library is included with Word 97. The file name is Msword8.olb.

Each Office 97 program provides a file called an object library, or type library, that contains information about the objects, properties, methods, events, and built-in constants it uses. You can use a the Object Browser to look at the information in this file and to browse the object model it describes.

To open the Object Browser in the Visual Basic Editor, use the following steps:

  1. In Word, point to Macro on the Tools menu, and click Visual Basic Editor.
  2. On the View menu, click Object Browser.
  3. From the Object Browser window, in the Project/Library box, click the object library whose objects you want to see (for example: Word), or click <All Libraries> to view the objects of all referenced libraries.

NOTE: If the object library whose objects you want to examine doesn't appear in the Project/Library box, you must create a reference to the object library using the References dialog box (Tools menu).

For Help on any of the Classes or Members, select the item, and then click the Help (question mark) button on the Object Browser toolbar.
