The Office 2010 Compatibility Inspector compares existing code against the Office 2010 object model by using a text search for known properties and methods that have changed.

The comment will include description of what was found along with possible remediation link to online content or help.

The tool integrates with both Visual Basic for Applications 7.0 and Visual Studio 2008. It includes a basic scanner where definitions and remediation links are updated from a central online location. It also generates a summary report and a details report. The summary includes the total lines of code scanned as well as total lines identified as potential candidates for object model changes. The details report includes the module name, line number, and links to remediation for each identified issue along with color-coded flags for impact guidance.
