NewFile object (Office)
Represents items listed on the New Item task pane available in several Microsoft Office applications.
The use of CommandBars in some Microsoft Office applications has been superseded by the new ribbon component of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface. For more information, see Overview of the Office Fluent ribbon.
You can use the Application property or the Creator property to access the NewFile object in each of the applications.
Use the Add method to add a new item to the New Item task pane. The following example adds an item to Word's New Document task pane.
Sub AddNewDocToTaskPane() Application.NewDocument.Add FileName:="C:\NewDocument.doc", _ Section:=msoNew, DisplayName:="New Document" CommandBars("Task Pane").Visible = True End Sub
Use the Remove method to remove an item from the New Item task pane. The following example removes the document added in the above example from Word's New Document task pane.
Sub RemoveDocFromTaskPane() Application.NewDocument.Remove FileName:="C:\NewDocument.doc", _ Section:=msoNew, DisplayName:="New Document" CommandBars("Task Pane").Visible = True End Sub
These examples are for Word, but you can change the NewDocument property for any of the properties listed and use the code in the corresponding application.
