An ActiveX control is a software component that adds functionality to an existing program. An ActiveX control is really just another term for an OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) object, known as a Component Object Model (COM) object.
Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 : Setting Add-in Security Options & Setting ActiveX Security Options

Visual Basic 2010 : Advanced Compilations with MSBuild - Introducing MSBuild (part 2) - Understanding Tasks and Creating Targets
MSBuild has the concept of a task, which is simply a unit of work that can be executed during the build process. You can add both predefined and custom tasks to the build process inside the project file.
Visual Basic 2010 : Advanced Compilations with MSBuild - Introducing MSBuild (part 1) - Introducing Projects
The best way for understanding how projects are structured is opening and analyzing an existing one. Create a new Console application with Visual Basic 2010, save it, and close it.

If you are a member of an online fax service, such as eFax, InterFAX, MyFax, or Send2Fax, you can use PowerPoint to send and receive faxes over the Internet directly from within your Microsoft Office program. If you’re not a member, a Web site can help you sign up.
Troubleshooting Performance Problems (part 3) - Troubleshooting Disk Performance Problems & Configuring Power Settings
Flash drives do not have a drive head, and fragmentation does not reduce their performance. Therefore, you never have to worry about fragmentation with a flash drive. Windows 7 automatically disables defragmentation for flash drives.
Troubleshooting Performance Problems (part 2) - Data Collector Sets and Reports
After running a data collector set, you can view the performance counters in Performance Monitor and you can view a summary of the other collected information in a report.
Troubleshooting Performance Problems (part 1) - Task Manager & Performance Monitor
Task Manager is the quickest way to identify common performance problems. Windows 7 makes it easy to open Task Manager even if the user interface isn't responding correctly.
Microsoft Excel 2010 : Analyzing Worksheet Data - Creating or Modifying a Table Style & Formatting Table Elements
When you create a table in a worksheet, Excel displays a standard set of elements, including headings, columns, and rows. You can select options on the Design tab under Table Tools to quickly format a table.

Microsoft Word 2010 : Expanding Word Functionality - Running a Macro & Controlling a Macro
If a macro doesn’t work exactly the way you want it to, you can fix the problem using Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). VBA allows you to debug, or repair, an existing macro so that you change only the actions that aren’t working correctly.
Visual Basic 2010 : Discussing the New Drag and Drop Data-Binding (part 4) - Implementing String Formatters and Value Converters
The need to represent strings in a more appropriate format when binding data to the user interface is not uncommon. For example, you might want to present money values or percentages. In WPF you can accomplish this in two modes: string formatters and the IValueConverter interface.
Visual Basic 2010 : Discussing the New Drag and Drop Data-Binding (part 3) - Understanding Views and Binding Lists
CollectionViewSource objects expose an interesting property named View. It basically provides the ability of filtering, sorting, and navigating through a bound collection of items.
Visual Basic 2010 : Discussing the New Drag and Drop Data-Binding (part 2) - Creating Master-Details Forms
Similarly to what already happened in Windows Forms, creating master-details forms in WPF 4 is also straightforward. This also enables you to understand other important concepts for the data-binding.
Visual Basic 2010 : Discussing the New Drag and Drop Data-Binding (part 1) - Creating Tabular Data Forms
The drag’n’drop data-binding has obviously some limitations, and in many cases you need to put your hands over the auto-generated code or, differently, write your own data-binding code from scratch.
Visual Basic 2010 : Introducing the Data-Binding
Windows Presentation Foundation offers a powerful data-binding engine, held by the System.Windows.Data namespace, which makes even simpler binding data to the user interface and receiving input from the user as well.
Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 : Adding a Digital Signature

While you work on your presentation, PowerPoint automatically saves and manages personal information and hidden data to enable you to collaborate on creating and developing a presentation with other people.
Visual Basic 2010 : Documenting the Source Code - Implementing XML Comments
XML comments have a double purpose. The first one is enabling additional help within IntelliSense when you write code. The second one is generating an XML file storing information that can be built into a compiled documentation file, such as the .Chm format that also allows navigation between documented items.
Visual Basic 2010 : Documenting the Source Code - Understanding XML Documents
XML documents are not new in Visual Basic 2010; they were first natively introduced with Visual Basic 2005. (In versions prior to 2005, XML comments were possible only via third-party add-ins.)
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Linking Data to Shapes Automatically
The key to the automatic linking facility is in the previous sentence: the shapes on the drawing page and the data in your spreadsheet or other data source must have matching IDs.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Refreshing Selected Data in Linked Diagrams & Scheduling Data Refresh
The procedure in the previous exercise automatically refreshes data from all linked data sources. Many times, this is exactly what you want to do. However, if your Visio diagram is linked to several data sources, there may be times when you want to update the drawing from a subset of the linked repositories.
Microsoft Excel 2010 : Building More Powerful Worksheets - Using Logical & Financial Functions
You can use formulas for depreciation, such as SLN (Straight-Line Depreciation) and SYD, or formulas for interest and investments, such as FV, EFFECT or IPMT. Many of the investment functions use the following arguments: rate, nominal_rate, per, nper, pv, fv, pmt, and type.
Microsoft Excel 2010 : Building More Powerful Worksheets - Using Date & Time Functions
Excel stores dates as sequential serial numbers so that they can be used in calculations. By default, January 1, 1900 is serial number 1 and each day counts up from there.
Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 : Editing Comments in a Presentation
PowerPoint uses a different color comment for each reviewer, which is based on the User name and Initials settings in PowerPoint Options. When you add or edit a comment, the color of the review comment changes to the reviewer’s color, and changes the comment name and date.
Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 : Adding Comments to a Presentation
A comment is visible only when you show comments using the Show Markup button and place the mouse pointer over the comment indicator. You can attach one or more comments to a letter or word on a slide, or to an entire slide.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Creating New Shape Data Fields
You can set the format for a duration field to display the time in any of the standard Visio durations, ranging from seconds to weeks, or you can display the duration in one of the two listed time formats.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Refreshing All Data in Linked Diagrams
The data linking mechanism of Visio is designed for one-way data transfer, that is, for importing data into a Visio diagram. The opposite does not work. In other words, you can refresh the data in a drawing after making changes in a linked data source, but you cannot make changes to data in Visio and then push those changes to the linked data source.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Linking Diagrams to External Data
Prior to Visio 2007, it was possible to link Visio shapes to external data, but it was rather cryptic, somewhat confusing, and the procedures often required programming or at least some technical knowledge.
