But what if there was a tool that could help you write VBA code faster and easier? A tool that could provide you with context sensitive IntelliSense, object model navigation, tooltips and documentation, builders and automation, code explorer and library, and more? A tool that could work with MS Access, Excel, Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, MS Project, Visio, and AutoCad?


Well, there is such a tool. It's called Code VBA 8.0, and it's a must-have for any VBA developer who wants to save time and effort, improve productivity and quality, and enhance their coding skills.


In this article, we will show you what Code VBA 8.0 is and why you need it. We will also show you its features and benefits, how to install and use it, and some examples of using it for common tasks.


Features and Benefits of Code VBA 8.0




Code VBA 8.0 is a powerful add-in that extends the functionality of the Visual Basic Editor (VBE) in Office applications. It provides you with a set of tools that make writing VBA code easier and faster.


Here are some of the features and benefits of Code VBA 8.0:


Context Sensitive IntelliSense




Code VBA 8.0 helps you select the right code from a shortcut menu that appears when you type a dot (.) after an object, a variable, or a keyword. It also helps you declare variables, set properties, call functions, and more. For example, if you type Range., you will see a list of properties and methods that apply to the Range object. You can then select the one you want and press Tab to insert it into your code. You can also press Ctrl+Space to display the shortcut menu at any time.


Code VBA 8.0 also helps you avoid syntax errors by automatically inserting parentheses, quotes, commas, and other symbols as needed. For example, if you type MsgBox, Code VBA 8.0 will insert the opening and closing parentheses for you: MsgBox(). You can then type the message and the buttons you want to display in the message box.


Object Model Navigation




Code VBA 8.0 helps you explore the application's object model and apply actions with cascading menus that appear when you right-click on an object in your code. For example, if you right-click on Range, you will see a menu that shows the properties and methods of the Range object, as well as the parent and child objects in the hierarchy. You can then select an action from the menu and apply it to your code.


Code VBA 8.0 also helps you insert code for common tasks with predefined templates that appear when you right-click on an object in your code. For example, if you right-click on Workbook, you will see a menu that shows templates for opening, saving, closing, copying, and deleting workbooks. You can then select a template and fill in the parameters as needed.


Tooltips and Documentation




Code VBA 8.0 helps you understand what classes and procedures do by showing tooltips that display the description, syntax, parameters, and return value of the selected item. For example, if you hover over Range.Find, you will see a tooltip that shows the following information:


Finds specific information in a range.


Syntax: expression.Find(What, After, LookIn, LookAt, SearchOrder, SearchDirection, MatchCase, MatchByte, SearchFormat)


Parameters:


  • What: Required Variant. The data to search for.



  • After: Optional Variant. The cell after which you want to search.



  • LookIn: Optional Variant. Can be one of the following XlFindLookIn constants: xlFormulas, xlValues, or xlComments.



  • LookAt: Optional Variant. Can be one of the following XlLookAt constants: xlWhole or xlPart.



  • SearchOrder: Optional Variant. Can be one of the following XlSearchOrder constants: xlByRows or xlByColumns.



  • SearchDirection: Optional XlSearchDirection. The search direction. Can be one of these XlSearchDirection constants: xlNext or xlPrevious.



  • MatchCase: Optional Variant. True to make the search case sensitive.



  • MatchByte: Optional Variant. Used only if youve selected or installed double-byte language support.



  • SearchFormat: Optional Variant. The search format.



Returns a Range object that represents the first cell where that information is found.


Code VBA 8.0 also helps you access online documentation by showing a link to the relevant web page when you right-click on an item in your code. For example, if you right-click on Range.Find, you will see a link to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/vba/api/excel.range.find, where you can find more details and examples about the Find method.


Code VBA 8.0 also helps you test code in the Immediate window by showing a link to run the selected code when you right-click on it. For example, if you right-click on MsgBox "Hello World", you will see a link to run it in the Immediate window, where you can see the result of your code.


Builders and Automation




Code VBA 8.0 helps you create code with various builders that guide you through the steps of creating different types of code elements, such as class modules, userforms, procedures, loops, etc. For example, if you want to create a class module for a table in Access, you can use the Create Class for Table tool, which will ask you to select the table name, the class name, the fields to include, and the options to generate code for properties, methods, and events. You can then click OK and Code VBA 8.0 will create the class module for you.


Code VBA 8.0 also helps you automate tasks with various tools that perform actions on your code, such as inserting error handling, adding line numbers, commenting out code, tidying indentation, etc. For example, if you want to add error handling to your procedure, you can use the Add Error Handling tool, which will ask you to select the type of error handling (On Error GoTo or On Error Resume Next), the label name, and the message to display. You can then click OK and Code VBA 8.0 will insert the error handling code for you.


Code Explorer and Library




Code VBA 8.0 helps you manage your code with the Code Explorer, which shows a tree view of all the modules, classes, procedures, and variables in your project. You can use the Code Explorer to navigate, edit, rename, delete, copy, paste, and export your code elements. You can also use the Code Explorer to search for code in your project or in other projects.


Code VBA 8.0 also helps you reuse your code with the Code Library, which contains hundreds of code fragments that you can insert into your project with a single click. You can browse the Code Library by category or by keyword, and you can preview the code before inserting it. You can also extend the Code Library with your own code fragments by exporting them from the Code Explorer.

Examples of Using Code VBA 8.0 for Common Tasks




To give you a better idea of how Code VBA 8.0 can help you write VBA code faster and easier, we will show you some examples of using it for common tasks in different Office applications.


Creating a Class Module for a Table in Access




One of the tasks that you may want to do in Access is to create a class module for a table, so that you can manipulate the data in the table with object-oriented programming. For example, you may have a table named Customers that contains information about your customers, such as name, address, phone, email, etc. You may want to create a class module named Customer that represents each customer as an object, with properties and methods that correspond to the fields and actions in the table.


With Code VBA 8.0, you can create a class module for a table in Access with just a few clicks. Here are the steps:


  • Open the Visual Basic Editor (VBE) in Access by pressing Alt+F11



  • Click on the Code VBA menu and select Create Class for Table



  • Select the table name from the drop-down list (in this case, Customers)



  • Enter the class name (in this case, Customer)



  • Select the fields that you want to include as properties in the class (in this case, all fields)



  • Select the options that you want to generate code for, such as constructors, getters and setters, validation, events, etc.



  • Click OK and Code VBA 8.0 will create the class module for you



The result will look something like this:


Option Compare Database Option Explicit 'Class: Customer 'Represents a customer in the Customers table Private m_ID As Long 'Primary key Private m_Name As String 'Customer name Private m_Address As String 'Customer address Private m_Phone As String 'Customer phone Private m_Email As String 'Customer email 'Constructor: Initialize a new Customer object Public Sub Class_Initialize() 'Set default values for properties m_ID = 0 m_Name = "" m_Address = "" m_Phone = "" m_Email = "" End Sub 'Property: ID 'Get or set the ID of the customer Public Property Get ID() As Long ID = m_ID End Property Public Property Let ID(ByVal value As Long) If value > 0 Then 'Validate input m_ID = value Else Err.Raise vbObjectError + 1000, "Customer.ID", "Invalid ID" End If End Property 'Property: Name 'Get or set the name of the customer Public Property Get Name() As String Name = m_Name End Property Public Property Let Name(ByVal value As String) If Len(value) > 0 Then 'Validate input m_Name = value Else Err.Raise vbObjectError + 1001, "Customer.Name", "Invalid name" End If End Property 'Property: Address 'Get or set the address of the customer Public Property Get Address() As String Address = m_Address End Property Public Property Let Address(ByVal value As String) If Len(value) > 0 Then 'Validate input m_Address = value Else Err.Raise vbObjectError + 1002, "Customer.Address", "Invalid address" End If End Property 'Property: Phone 'Get or set the phone of the customer Public Property Get Phone() As String Phone = m_Phone End Property Public Property Let Phone(ByVal value As String) If Len(value) > 0 Then 'Validate input m_Phone = value Else Err.Raise vbObjectError + 1003, "Customer.Phone", "Invalid phone" End If End Property 'Property: Email 'Get or set the email of the customer Public Property Get Email() As String Email = m_Email End Property Public Property Let Email(ByVal value As String) If Len(value) > 0 Then 'Validate input m_Email = value Else Err.Raise vbObjectError + 1004, "Customer.Email", "Invalid email" End If End Property 'Event: BeforeSave 'Occurs before the customer is saved to the table Public Event BeforeSave(ByVal Cancel As Boolean) 'Event: AfterSave 'Occurs after the customer is saved to the table Public Event AfterSave() 'Method: Save 'Save the customer to the table Public Sub Save() Dim db As DAO.Database 'Database object Dim rs As DAO.Recordset 'Recordset object Dim Cancel As Boolean 'Cancel flag Set db = CurrentDb() 'Get the current database Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("Customers") 'Open the Customers table Cancel = False 'Initialize cancel flag RaiseEvent BeforeSave(Cancel) 'Raise the BeforeSave event If Not Cancel Then 'If not cancelled If Me.ID = 0 Then 'If new customer rs.AddNew 'Add a new record Me.ID = rs!ID 'Get the generated ID Else 'If existing customer rs.FindFirst "ID = " & Me.ID 'Find the record by ID End If rs!Name = Me.Name 'Update the name field rs!Address = Me.Address 'Update the address field rs!Phone = Me.Phone 'Update the phone field rs!Email = Me.Email 'Update the email field rs.Update 'Save the record RaiseEvent AfterSave() 'Raise the AfterSave event MsgBox "Customer saved successfully", vbInformation, "Success" 'Show success message Else 'If cancelled MsgBox "Customer save cancelled", vbExclamation, "Cancel" 'Show cancel message End If rs.Close 'Close the recordset db.Close 'Close the database Set rs = Nothing 'Release the recordset object Set db = Nothing 'Release the database object End Sub 'Method: Delete 'Delete the customer from the table Public Sub Delete() Dim db As DAO.Database 'Database object Dim rs As DAO.Recordset 'Recordset object Set db = CurrentDb() 'Get the current database Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("Customers") 'Open the Customers table If Me.ID > 0 Then 'If valid ID If MsgBox("Are you sure you want to delete this customer?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Confirm") = vbYes Then 'Confirm deletion rs.FindFirst "ID = " & Me.ID 'Find the record by ID If Not rs.NoMatch Then 'If found rs.Delete 'Delete the record MsgBox "Customer deleted successfully", vbInformation, "Success" 'Show success message Else 'If not found MsgBox "Customer not found", vbCritical, "Error" 'Show error message End If End If Else 'If invalid ID MsgBox "Invalid customer ID", vbCritical, "Error" 'Show error message End If rs.Close 'Close the recordset db.Close 'Close the database Set rs = Nothing 'Release the recordset object Set db = Nothing 'Release the database object End Sub


As you can see, Code VBA 8.0 has generated a class module for you that contains properties, events, and methods for a customer object. You can then use this class module in your code to create and manipulate customer objects. For example, you can do something like this:


Dim cust As Customer Set cust = New Customer cust.Name = "John Smith" cust.Address = "123 Main Street" cust.Phone = "555-1234" cust.Email = "john.smith@example.com" cust.Save MsgBox cust.ID cust.Delete Set cust = Nothing


This code will create a new customer object, assign some values to its properties, save it to the Customers table, display its ID, delete it from the table, and release it from memory.


Creating a UserForm with Controls in Excel




Another task that you may want to do in Excel is to create a userform with controls, so that you can interact with the user and collect input data. For example, you may want to create a userform that allows the user to enter some information about a product, such as name, price, quantity, and category. You may want to use various controls on your userform, such as text boxes, labels, combo boxes, option buttons, check boxes, etc.


With Code VBA 8.0, you can create a userform with controls in Excel with just a few clicks. Here are the steps:


  • Open the Visual Basic Editor (VBE) in Excel by pressing Alt+F11



  • Click on the Code VBA menu and select UserForm Builder



  • Select the workbook and the worksheet where you want to insert the userform



  • Enter the name and caption of the userform (in this case, ProductForm and Product Information)



  • Select the controls that you want to add to the userform from the list (in this case, four labels, four text boxes, one combo box, four option buttons, and two command buttons)



  • Enter the properties of each control, such as name, caption, value, list, etc.



  • Click OK and Code VBA 8.0 will create the userform and the code for you



The result will look something like this:


Option Explicit 'UserForm: ProductForm 'Allows the user to enter product information Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() 'Initialize the userform Me.cboCategory.List = Array("Books", "Electronics", "Clothing", "Toys") 'Fill the combo box with categories Me.optBooks.Value = True 'Select the first option button by default End Sub Private Sub cmdOK_Click() 'Validate and submit the input data Dim ws As Worksheet 'Worksheet object Dim lr As Long 'Last row number Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Products") 'Get the Products worksheet If Me.txtName.Value = "" Then 'If name is empty MsgBox "Please enter a product name", vbExclamation, "Error" 'Show error message Me.txtName.SetFocus 'Set focus to name text box Exit Sub 'Exit sub End If If Me.txtPrice.Value = "" Then 'If price is empty MsgBox "Please enter a product price", vbExclamation, "Error" 'Show error message Me.txtPrice.SetFocus 'Set focus to price text box Exit Sub 'Exit sub End If If Not IsNumeric(Me.txtPrice.Value) Then 'If price is not numeric MsgBox "Please enter a valid product price", vbExclamation, "Error" 'Show error message Me.txtPrice.SetFocus 'Set focus to price text box Exit Sub 'Exit sub End If If Me.txtQuantity.Value = "" Then 'If quantity is empty MsgBox "Please enter a product quantity", vbExclamation, "Error" 'Show error message Me.txtQuantity.SetFocus 'Set focus to quantity text box Exit Sub 'Exit sub End If If Not IsNumeric(Me.txtQuanti
