Produces and Gives a reference to an Automation Object
The class argument uses the syntax servername.typename and has these parts:
Automation servers provide at least one type of object. For example, a word-processing application may provide an application object, a document object, and a toolbar object.
To create an Automation object, assign the object returned by CreateObject to an object variable:
Set ExcelSheet = CreateObject("Excel.Sheet")
This code starts the application creating the object ( in this case, a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet). Once an object is created, you refer to it in code using the object variable you defined. In the following example, you access properties and methods of the new object using the object variable, ExcelSheet, and other Excel objects, including the Application object and the Cells collection. For example:
' Make Excel visible through the Application object.
ExcelSheet.Application.Visible - True
' Place some text in the first cell of the sheet.
ExcelSheet.Cells(1,1).Value = "This is column A, row 1"
' Save the sheet.
' Close Excel with the Quit method on the Application object.
' Release the object variable.
Set ExcelSheet = Nothing
||The name of the
application providing the object.
||The type or class of the
object to create.
