how to pass parameters to a VBA function?

Recommended Posts


I have the following VBA statement which i want to run through AutoIT via COM

ActiveDocument.Close SaveChanges:=wdDoNotSaveChanges


I have this in AutoIT which works:

$oWord = ObjCreate("Word.Application")


But how can i append the VBA function parameter ("SaveChanges=False")?

You always have to pass the complete parameters in the correct order to the function call if you use it like above. You can get the defaults from the Microsoft documentation.
