Office 2007 Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library
As per the OP I'm after an authoritive list of properties and methods for the Forms 2.0 Textbox. I know they (probably) inherit everything from the TextBoxBase (see -us/library/system.windows.forms.textbox.aspx ), but I'd like to work from documentation rather than assumption!

Then the options that appear in the IntelliSense list are all the generic objects ones - it doesn't even have the .text property, let alone all the .sellength, sel.start, etc, ones. This has been the case in Access 2003 and 2007; once when I looked into it I was told it wouldn't pick them up.
Hello,I have worked on a file for long time using Excel 2003. I have few macros and custom functions written. I decided to use another computer to do some additional work on this file - mainly new formulas and outline, but no code writing. The file was opened as 2003 and was saved in the same fashion, was not converted to 2007 at any point.I saved it and closed it. I then opened it on my original computer and after opening it gave me "Automation Error - Catastrophic Failure" message without an error number. Right after that it sent me to VBA screen and instead of having my file name under the Project Tree, it has "VBAproject". I click on it and can see my code and my forms, but the worksheets are not label properly plus they have this little blue icon next to them.I tried to open the file again by clicking Disable macros, and no error was given but obviously can't do much with the file.One thing I read around is about sharing and references. This file sharing options were turned off so that's not it. I then realized under VBA-Tools-References that the office 2007 is referencing different files for some of the selections, like Visual Basic For Applications, Microsoft Excel 12.0 Object Library, etc. I copied those files to the proper folders on the 2003 computer but that didn't do the trick. When I click disable macros and go to check the references in the 2003 version everything looks normal.
I'm a bit confused though, if I follow you are saying you've got problems with a file that's never even been opened in 2007. Also if I follow the exact same file opens fine in some 2003 systems but not in others. Does the file include any non standard forms controls, any controls that you would have needed to add to the toolbox for example.
If you use the objects in other applications as part of your Visual Basic application, you may want to establish a reference to the object libraries of those applications. Before you can do that, you must first be sure that the application provides an object library.
The References dialog box shows all object libraries registered with the operating system. Scroll through the list for the application whose object library you want to reference. If the application isn't listed, you can use the Browse button to search for object libraries (*.olb and *.tlb) or executable files (*.exe and *.dll on Windows). References whose check boxes are selected are used by your project; those that aren't selected are not used, but can be added.
Select the object library reference in the Available References box in the References dialog box and choose OK. Your Visual Basic project now has a reference to the application's object library. If you open the Object Browser (press F2) and select the application's library, it displays the objects provided by the selected object library, as well as each object's methods and properties.
Online forms contain the same features as printed forms. In addition, online forms contain controls. Controls are objects that display data or make it easier for users to enter or edit data, perform an action, or make a selection. In general, controls make the form easier to use. Examples of common controls include list boxes, option buttons, and command buttons. Controls can also run assigned macros and respond to events, such as mouse clicks, by running Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code.
In addition to objects such as DoCmd, Err, Debug, as well as objects found in the ADODB library, VBA provides the Microsoft Office Object model for use in the suite of applications found in Microsoft Office. Most of the Microsoft Office Objects can be used across the Microsoft Office suite of applications such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Access. Some office objects, however, are application specific. To work with the examples in this chapter, ensure that your Access program has a reference set to the Microsoft Office Object library. Setting a reference allows you to work with other application objects in your code. In older versions of Microsoft Access, the Microsoft Office Object references may not be set. You know if a reference is not set as soon as you try to access a property, constant, or method of an object that requires a reference.

To implement this in VBA, the Access.Application object exposes the CommandBars collection so you can work directly with all of the menus available in Access UI. Using the CommandBar, CommandBarPopup, and CommandBarButton objects in code requires a VBA Reference be set to the Microsoft Office 12 Object Library in Access 2007. Here's a brief example of creating an Encode Database function by simulating a click to the Encode Decode Database button in the Access menu bar
The FileSearch object is a member of the Microsoft Office object library. This object essentially gives your VBA code all the functionality of the Windows Find File dialog box. For example, you can use this object to locate files that match a file specification (such as *.xls) and even search for files that contain specific text. You can use this object with Excel 97 and later versions.
Benefits of an enhanced IntelliSense feature for the Outlook object model (or the Interop object models of Word and Excel), you should install the IntelliSense XML files that are available as a download on www.microsoft.com . In the Download Center, search for IntelliSense and select Microsoft IntelliSense XML Files for Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System Solution Developers. You can then download and install VSTOIntelliSenseXML.msi.
In addition to Microsoft Excel objects, you can use the Microsoft Office, Microsoft forms, and DAO and ADO object models. Objects that belong to these libraries can be used in Excel, as well as in other applications that are members of the Microsoft Office family of products. See Chapter 15 for examples of using DAO and ADO object models in accessing the Microsoft Access databases from Excel.
The Microsoft Outlook 2002 Object Model This library contains the objects, properties, methods, and events for almost all the objects that you work with in Outlook, with the exception of the Forms 2.0 Object Library objects and the Microsoft Office XP Object Library objects. When you set a reference to this object library in the References dialog box, select Microsoft Outlook 10.0 Object Model. 3. The Microsoft Office XP Object Model This library contains the objects, methods, properties, and constants you use to work with the CommandBars, Assistant, COMAddlns, LanguageSettings, and AnswerWizard objects. When you set a reference to this object library in the References dialog box, select Microsoft Office 10.0 Object Library. To view the objects available in the Microsoft Outlook 2002 Object Model and the Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library, you can use the Help file described earlier in this chapter, or you can use an object browser.
For many Office versions, it has been possible to export Access data to Word documents from the Access toolbar. The name of the control and toolbar location have changed over Office versions in Access 2003 it was the OfficeLinks drop-down control on the Database toolbar, offering options to Merge to Word (Mail Merge), Publish to Word (RTF), or Analyze with Excel (XLS). In Access 2007, on the new Ribbon that replaces the old toolbars and menus, the External Data tab (shown in Figure 6.1) has an Export group with a variety of export options, including Excel, SharePoint, Word (RTF), Text File, and More. On the More drop-down menu, there are a number of export selections, including Merge It with Microsoft Office Word. 3f irtiior disabled) according to the type of object selected in the Object Bar, and whether the object is open or closed.
Note If you're interested in programming Microsoft Office Access databases using the older Data Access Objects (DAO) (and this may be a valid requirement if you happen to be involved in a DAO to ADO conversion project), AppendixA.pdf in the book's downloadable files contains numerous DAO programming examples. The ADODB library is the most commonly used object library, as it allows you to retrieve and manipulate data. Its objects are presented in Figure 10-1. If you installed Microsoft Office Access 2003 (or any other application in Office 2003), you should have ADO 2.5 installed on your computer.
