Writing an MS Word Addin
(Page 1 of 3 )

 After having written about developing Office COM addins in an earlier article, I get a lot of mail from people trying to write Word addins. Through this article we will discuss common development issues regarding Word addins in general. First, we learn how to build a simple WORD 2000 ATL COM addin. Later in the article, we will get down to Word's VBA macro side of things, and write an addin that works for all versions of Word, independent of COM addin support.

I'm assuming you have read my previous article on Office addins and taken a look at the sample project. There are a lot of issues in addin development like adding custom menu/toolbars, handling events, property pages etc that are common for all Office addins, including Word. These have already been discussed in that article. Here we are going to write a Word 2000 COM addin, to begin with. Later, we'll delve into Office and VBA in general, and with respect to with C++ addins.
