VB.Net, Office, #$%^&@ Constants

Where do I get a listing of what the values are for Excel and Word constants that were perfectly legitimate (or at least some were) in VB 6 but seemed to have disappeared off the face of the planet for VB.NET

For example

    With objWS.Range("A1:M1")
        .HorizontalAlignment = xlLeft
        .VerticalAlignment = xlBottom
        .WrapText = False
        .Orientation = 0
        .AddIndent = False
        .IndentLevel = 0
        .ShrinkToFit = False
        .ReadingOrder = xlContext
        .MergeCells = True
    End With

I need to find values for xlLeft, xlCenter, xlRight, xlBottom, xlContext, ad. nausum.

you've to explicitely refer to them using the Excel namespace.


worksheet.Range("A1:M1").VerticalAlignment = Excel.Constants.xlBottom

if you can't find the enum/constant in Excel.Constants namespace,
the easiest way to locate them is go to Excel, Tools > Macros > VB Editor.
In the VBA, press F2 (or view > object browser) and enter the name of the constant and search for it. it'll list LIBRARY and CLASS columns. Use them as a namespace.

I was about to update the question that I FINALLY found the name space in the object browser with all the constants declared but then needed to know how I referenced it. This is exactly what I was looking for.
