Private Sub expression _DocumentChange()
expression A variable that represents an Application object declared with events in a class module.
For information about using events with the Application object, see Using Events with the Application Object.

This code must be placed in a class module, and an instance of the class must be correctly initialized to see this example work; see Using Events with the Application Object for directions on how to accomplish this.
