@EntryPoint annotation, marks a standard or document module member as an entry point procedure that is not intended to be referenced directly from the code.

CallerNameText If provided, the first argument is interpreted as referring to an external caller, for example the name of a Shape in the host document.

Members with this annotation are ignored by the ProcedureNotUsed inspection. The CallerName argument is currently not being validated, but may be in the future. When hosted in Microsoft Excel, the @ExcelHotkey annotation can be used in standard modules instead of @EntryPoint to associate a hotkey shortcut.


Each example is a self-contained MCVE showing the feature in a single specific scenario.

Standard Module
Named Module1 by default, these are general-purpose standard procedural modules.
Class Module
Named Class1 by default, these modules define the default interface for an object of that type.
Predeclared Class
A class module with its VB_PredeclaredId attribute set to True (with or without a @PredeclaredId annotation).
Interface Module
Abstract interfaces are class modules (with or without an @Interface annotation) whose default interface is not a class type intended to be instantiated.
UserForm Module
A predeclared class with a design-time visual designer using the MSForms UI framework.
Document Module
Owned by the host application, these class modules belong to the host document and may handle various events fired by the host application.
