It's used to specify the values for the arguments in a function. It has no other direct meaning.

An example (copying worksheets) on it's use is....

    Worksheets("Sheet1").Copy After:=Worksheets("Sheet3")

...which creates a copy of Sheet1 and places it after Sheet3. It can also be written like this...

    Worksheets("Sheet1").Copy , Worksheets("Sheet3")

Note the comma. When not specifying the argument as in the first example, arguments must be in the function order, which for the Worksheet.Copy function is ([Before], [After]).
