Published: April 8, 2014 Version: 1.0 This security update resolves one publicly disclosed vulnerability and two privately reported vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office.
During development, using early binding is easier because it provides Intelli Sense.
For deployment, however, late binding is often preferred because code continues to compile regardless of whether a reference is missing.
Customers who have automatic updating enabled and configured to check online for updates from Microsoft Update typically will not need to take any action because this security update will be downloaded and installed automatically.
Customers who have not enabled automatic updating need to check for updates from Microsoft Update and install this update manually.
In late binding, variables are defined as Object instead of the strongly typed data type for an object.
For example, if you were automating objects in the Excel 2007 object model, you might have code that looks something like this: Notice that we've changed the variable declarations of the objects to use the Object data type in VBA.If you are using Share Point Server 2010 in a server farm, you must explicitly enable Word Automation Services.Microsoft Web Applications 2010 is an optional feature that can be deployed on Share Point Server 2010 and Share Point Foundation 2010 installations.With late binding, you may also consider using the Is Nothing function calling a method on an object. Worksheet ' Launch Excel Set obj XL = Create Object("Excel.For example, to open a workbook in Excel using late binding, you might write it something like this: Dim obj XL As Object ' Excel. Application") ' Get the workbook If (Not Is Nothing(obj XL)) Then Set obj Book = obj XL.
