Microsoft Office 2010 offer some powerful tools, using this tools you can create application. Using Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) you can create your own application according to your need. These application can performer some specific task.
For creating application we can use
- VBA host of Excel 2010
- VBA host of PowerPoint 2010

Dim cf As ColorFormat
cf = b.Fill.ForeColor
cf.Brightness = brightnessValue
Function Pause(numberOfSeconds As Object)
Dim startTime, endTime As Object
startTime = Timer
endTime = startTime + numberOfSeconds
Do While Timer < endTime
