  • Hello,

    The MSDN, TechNet and Expression Library Feedback forum is to "Help improve the Library Experience in MSDN, TechNet and Expression by providing feedback on features, bugs, look and feel or by just providing suggestions". This is not a support forum.

    As it's off-topic here, I am moving the question to the Where is the forum for... forum.

  • Hello,

    Per http://www.stack.nl/~dimitri/doxygen/, it should work with C#.

    The support page is http://www.stack.nl/~dimitri/doxygen/support.html, which includes this:

    You can also check Stack Overflow and ask your questions there using the doxygen label.

  • Dear Karl,

    Thank you for your answer.  In my question I should have stated that I would like an equivalent  of Deoxygen for VBA.  In particular I am looking for a program which will document the Sub-routines and Function calls and perhaps a list of parameters for each sub.  Deoxygen will take the comments and make up the start technical documentation for a list of sub and function calls in a given program.

    I wonder if you have any information about a similar utility?

  • Dear Karl,

    Thank you, I am new to the Forum.  So the Expression Library will be something I will use in the future.

    Hello,

    I don't know of such a utility.

    You might ask in the Microsoft Office for Developers forums.

    And, yes, it's always a good idea to state your question clearly.
