Default Terminology

Hi there,

Im a newbie (at the forum and at VBA), so here goes a, perhaps, silly question.

What's the difference between an "argument" and a "parameter", if any?

It seems to me the authors use both words as synonyms throughout the book.

However, it should be pointed out that on page XXV, they make an explicit distinction, to wit:

"The VBE provides users with much more help than was previously available. For example, as you write code, pop-ups appear with lists of appropriate methods and properties for objects, and arguments and parameter values for functions and methods."

Tks.

Al
