If I add some VBA object in a word document (let's say a checkbox) how can I interact with it in my regular VB application? (Changing/reading its property) ??

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

An example from MS;

Dim i As Integer

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    TextBox1.Text = "Value of " & ActiveControl.Name & " is " & ActiveControl.Value
End Sub

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
    CommandButton1.Caption = "Get value of current control"
    CommandButton1.AutoSize = True
    CommandButton1.TakeFocusOnClick = False
    CommandButton1.TabStop = False
   
    TextBox1.AutoSize = True
   
    For i = 0 To 10
        ComboBox1.AddItem "Choice " & (i + 1)

        ListBox1.AddItem "Selection " & (100 - i)
    Next i
   
    CheckBox1.TripleState = True
    ToggleButton1.TripleState = True
   
    TextBox2.Text = "Enter text here."
End Sub

This code is used within vba, no outside in VB.

Sorry about that I had just finished answering some questions in the Office area and my brain still hadnt swithced topics. You can use automation.

example;

Function AccessWordObject()
Dim objWD As Object
Dim strFlName As String

strFlName = FILE NAME
Set objWD = GetObject(, "Word.Application")

Set objWD = GetObject(strFlName)

   With objWD.Application
' ***********************************************
    ' Place you VBA code in here  
      .Application.Run "Macro.Function"

" ***********************************************
   End With

   Set objWD = Nothing

End Function
