You can automate tasks by writing PerfectScript macros and control WordPerfect Office applications by writing OLE 2.0 programs. You can also add custom functionality to WordPerfect and Presentations by creating Third Party Handler DLLs, as well as add custom functions to Quattro Pro by creating Quattro Pro add-In DLLs.

The WordPerfect Office SDK generates the necessary source code to set up a project. You can then type additional code or use the utilities in the WordPerfect Office SDK, such as the Command Inserter or PerfectScript Library, to insert code.
