Set objDoc = MyApp.MyObj : Rem Define the object Rem reference
This is not necessary when using the much more common apostrophe:
Set objDoc = MyApp.MyObj ' Define the object reference
Apostrophes held within quotation marks are not treated as comment markers, as this code snippet shows:
myVar = "'Something'"
The Visual Studio development environment contains block-comment and block-uncomment buttons on the Text Editor toolbar, which allow you to comment out or uncomment a selection of many rows of code at once.
You cannot use the line-continuation character (“_”) with comments.
In VB 6, if a line containing a comment ends in an underscore (the
