DevTracer – Trace Monitor for Visual Basic® for Applications
DevTracer is a developer tool for tracing diagnostic output.
It supports all applications using Visual Basic® for Applications,
including Microsoft® Office® 2000, Microsoft Office 2002 XP, Microsoft Office 2003 and Microsoft Office
2007 (Word, Excel®, Access™, ...).

window of the VBA development environment, which is not available once the application
is compiled. Furthermore DevTracer provides much better
formatting capabilities (Indent and Unindent).

application, and a COM-component for use by the Office application. Because the
trace information is send to the monitor application using TCP/IP, it is even possible
to run DevTracer monitor on a second computer, provided that a network connection
The documentation includes some sample code.
It shows how to use DevTracer in a way that the application will still
run on a computer without DevTracer installed, without making
any changes to the code or recompiling the application.
