Integrating with COM Applications
Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services can be integrated directly into your existing code by using the WCF service moniker. The service moniker can be used from a wide range of COM-based development environments, such as Office VBA, Visual Basic 6.0, or Visual C++ 6.0.
