VBA - linking applications videos | Excel VBA Part 27.1 - Creating Word Documents
Posted by Andrew Gould on 21 March 2014
Writing VBA code in Excel doesn't only allow you to control Excel, you also have access to all of the other Office applications. This video looks at how to create documents in Microsoft Word by writing code in Excel. You'll learn how to reference the Word Object Library, several methods for creating a new instance of the Word application, how to create new documents and how to copy data from Excel into Word. You'll also learn the importance of testing for which version of Word your users are running and how to write version-independent code that will work with (almost) any version of Word.

Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
