Run Project and Stop Project Commands (Run Menu)

This page is specific to the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) Language Reference for Office 2010.

Run Project

Puts the project into a mode in which it can be used by other applications. This is used to debug and test the stand-alone project before building a dynamic-link library (DLL) (DLL) from it. The current project is registered, replacing any existing registration information for the project (the registry information for an existing DLL version of the project, for example).

Stop Project

Unregisters the project, and restores any previous registry information. This makes the in-memory project no longer able to be called from other applications.


The Run Project and Stop Project commands are available only to the current stand-alone project. They are not available to host application document projects.


This feature is not available in all versions of the Visual Basic Editor.
