Static code analysis can find hundreds of opportunities in VBA code.
Rubberduck builds its own internal representation of the code, and then proceeds to analyze it. Each individual inspection can easily be disabled, or configured to issue inspection results at different severity levels ranging from
Use the Inspection Results toolwindow to review Rubberduck’s findings, search, filter, regroup results by inspection, location, type, or severity. Each inspection result comes with a detailed description of what’s being flagged and why, so you can make an enlightened decision.
Unless configured otherwise, Rubberduck automatically runs inspections after the a parser/resolver cycle completes (regardless of whether the inspection results toolwindow is displayed or not).
For the best experience, it would be recommended to first try Rubberduck with an empty project, add a new module, and write, say, a loop that counts 1 to 10 and outputs to the debug pane - then to parse that and review the inspection results; carefully review the inspection settings, and consider disabling the inspections that irreconcilably clash with your preferences: use meaningful names alone can easily produce hundreds upon hundreds of results if you’re not that much into using vowels, or if you, say, prefix all your variable names; these inspections can be re-enabled anytime you’re ready!

Indicates that the value of a hidden VB attribute is out of sync with the corresponding Rubberduck annotation comment.
Keeping Rubberduck annotation comments in sync with the hidden VB attribute values, surfaces these hidden attributes in the VBE code panes; Rubberduck can rewrite the attributes to match the corresponding annotation comment.
Identifies conditional assignments to mutually exclusive Boolean literal values in conditional branches.
The assignment could be made directly to the result of the conditional Boolean expression instead.
Locates indexed default member calls for which the corresponding object does not have a suitable suitable default member.
The VBA compiler does not check whether the necessary default member is present. Instead there is a runtime error whenever the runtime type fails to have the default member.
