Salesforce integration with VBA (where to start)

Okay, I'm new here, spent the last 5 hours going in circles just trying to find the Office toolkit and dlls.  I can find the manuals and references to go to the developers home page and download the toolkit, but I can not find it anywhere and most references to links I'm finding are dated 2006-2007.


What I'm ultimately trying to accomplish is this:    I have a macro enabled Word document with an extensive application written in Visual Basic for Applications that generates proposals.  It is currently installed on a users PC as a standalone Word document with a collection of Word document templates that are converted into a final proposal document merged with users contact information and clients contact information.


I want to integrate my existing VBA application with to pull in contact information from and output our assembled proposals in a way/location that works with


The development environment for our VBA application is Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications 7.0 (the Office 2010 version however it works with versions back to Office 2002).   Also ours works with both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Office 2010.  Does's Office Toolkit support the new Office 2010 32-bit and 64-bit?


I have found references to an older Office Toolkit with a demo that sounds like it along the lines of what I'm doing.  Is there a link to that demo (it was described in a 2007 support posting as a Word document with a macro that shows how integrate with Salesforce)? 


I can not find any links or ways to download or install the "Office Toolkit" from either my developer login, or my login in the Setup area.   All I can find is the Office Toolkit manual.


How do I get started?




You can download from here


lots of good stuff in there.  You shouldn't have a problem using it from VBA version x; there are good examples of most things on this site.




Thanks, I just found the MSI installer link (the salesforce site makes it look like its just an alternate installer for the documentation), also the DLL name doesn't match the documentation.  But I was able to get it installed into my VBA and I can see the functions now in the object browser.  Should be good to go for at least doing some initial playing around.


Ugh - that link is now broken.  Can anyone point me to where that file is?
