You might find the need to create a utility simply because a task becomes unwieldy in the host program. For example, many of my worksheets contain extensive notes. Editing those notes in Excel can become a real problem after the note gets to a certain size. However, Word provides a great editor, and I can make the notes as long as needed. The example shown in Listing 16-7 includes part of a program that I created for moving notes between Word and Excel so that they're easier to edit. (You can find the source code for this example on the Dummies.com site at http://www.dummies.com/go/ vbafd5e.)
