The following is a collection of sample code of varying usefulness. Give them a try. You never can tell...
UsefulOfficeExports - Over 50 exports from the Office DLL
Over the last few years, I have had a lot of opportunity to use undocumented exports in the Office DLL -- first mso97.dll for Office 97, then the runtime mso97rt.dll for add-ins in the VB5/VB6 IDE, and finally apps and tools in Office 2000 with mso9.dll. This module, UsefulOfficeExports, contains most of the functions I have puzzled out over that time. None of it is supported, and a lot of it was painful to figure out, but there are some cool goodies in there. Enjoy!
