Part Description
object Required. An expression that returns an Application object.
DisplayName Required String. The name of the menu command to be added to the Tools menu. Should be a unique name. Use the ampersand (&) to indicate an accelerator key. Use two ampersands (&&) to add an ampersand to the menu.
