Good news everyone
As I no longer have time to work on Metadata Browser’s development, I decided to do what I should have done a long time ago – publish the source code!
Have fun with it, and don’t forget to make your updates available to the community 😉
Download the source code.
The code is written in VB6.
I will ask you in advance to apologize me for any ugly spaghetti code that you might find. Please bear in mind that I had no knowledge of VB6 when I started working on this tool, a few years ago.

In the first episode of this series I showed you how to connect to a MicroStrategy project using VB6. Time has come to look at three ways that can be employed to find an object.
Two of these methods (objSearch.Execute and ObjectSource.FindObject) are actually covered by Tech Notes on the Knowledge Base. Nevertheless, I thought to embed them in easy to use Functions.
The third method is the famous Search by ID, as I think is time for me to disclose its secrets… To be honest I never thought I would, but hey, it’s my 3 years within MicroStrategy community anniversary, so this one is on me
