VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) is very powerful and versatile and can be used to extend the capabilities of many applications.

TruckleSoft specialises in AutoCAD / MicroStation customisation but can write utilities for any software application that supports VBA (such as any of the Microsoft Office applications).

Can your working practices be reviewed? Because implementing some customised procedures could:

  • Simplify your working method statements.
  • Improve product quality.
  • Reduce work time scales?

The power made available with VBA simply cannot be given justice here!

Microsoft Word VBA Macros

These extend the features of Microsoft Word and help automate or improve working practices. For example, this macro presents the user with a form. Then, based upon the settings supplied by the user it creates a document for issue to the client (click to enlarge):

In this particular example, the macro was developed for creating Station Description Sheets. The coordinate data is imported from surveyed data files so there is virtually no user input needed! Other parameters are specified via the Program Settings tab. This type of macro is very useful for surveyors.


Such tools:

  1. Cut down the time needed to prepare these documents.
  2. Reduces human error by directly reading the source data.
  3. Improves company performance.
