Universal Trace Monitor for Software Developers and Testers

DevTracer – Trace Monitor for Visual Basic® for Applications

DevTracer is a developer tool for tracing diagnostic output. It supports all applications using Visual Basic® for Applications, including Microsoft® Office® 2000, Microsoft Office 2002 XP, Microsoft Office 2003 and Microsoft Office 2007 (Word, Excel®, Access™, ...).

It replaces the use of Debug.Print. Debug.Print has the disadvantage that it always writes to the immediate window of the VBA development environment, which is not available once the application is compiled. Furthermore DevTracer provides much better formatting capabilities (Indent and Unindent).

DevTracer consists of a monitor, which is a standalone Windows application, and a COM-component for use by the Office application. Because the trace information is send to the monitor application using TCP/IP, it is even possible to run DevTracer monitor on a second computer, provided that a network connection exists.

The documentation includes some sample code. It shows how to use DevTracer in a way that the application will still run on a computer without DevTracer installed, without making any changes to the code or recompiling the application.
