Automation Model


The model chart shows you which objects provide access to other objects in the hierarchy. The Application object is at the top of the hierarchy and all objects are directly accessible from the Application object. To access many objects you must traverse from the Application object through one or more layers of sub-objects. People often refer to "drilling" or "boring" through the hierarchy to describe this traversal through several objects to obtain an object you want to use.
