You can store and manage reusable code in a centralized database. You can add your own code to the existing Code Librarian database, or you can create new code databases. The Code Librarian has a whole new look for Microsoft Office XP Developer, providing more efficient code management and functionality.
The Code Librarian includes a large starter database of prewritten code for standard routines for Microsoft® Office XP, Visual Basic® for Applications (VBA), Office XP Developer projects and the Microsoft Development Environment.
Each code snippet is associated with a category and multiple keywords, making it easy to find the code you are looking for. When you have located a desired piece of code in the Code Librarian, it is easy to add that code to your code module. The Code Librarian supports drag-and-drop as well as cut-and-paste actions.
