Me is a reserved name (you can't have a variable by that name) that refers to something that can only exist at run-time in a procedure's scope: the current object. Under the hood, when you make a member call to
DoSomething against a
Class1 object, the call goes essentially like this:
Set obj = New Class1 Class1.DoSomething obj
DoSomething looks like this in VBA:
Public Sub DoSomething() End Sub
But VBA sees it like this:
Public Sub DoSomething(ByVal Me As Class1) End Sub
Me an implicit locally-scoped
ByVal parameter of type
Class1, and inside the
DoSomething scope it holds a reference to whatever object the caller is currently using.
