WithEvents displayAddress As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Action

Private Sub AddSmartTag()

    Dim smartTagDemo As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.SmartTag = _
        "Demonstration Smart Tag")

    ' Specify a term and an expression to recognize.
    smartTagDemo.Expressions.Add( _
        New System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex( _

    displayAddress = Globals.Factory.CreateAction("To be replaced")

    ' Add the action to the smart tag.
    smartTagDemo.Actions = New Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Action() { _

    ' Add the smart tag.
End Sub
