.ByField in Excel Question

Hi All,

Can someone explain what the .ByField in ‘Excel Automation’ means?

Hi @praveen1902

Appreciate the reply.
That does help me to understand.

Curious to ask if my question is something common?
As in is it something that I would have been able to answer myself (like you) if I were to understand VB programming language or it’s a different thing altogether? If yes, could you point me towards where to deepen this ‘topic’/knowledge?
