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) ??

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
