Default Library of Shape types and Parameters VBA Excel 2007

Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone was aware of a really good library of shape names and the associated parameters for them to insert via VBA macro code. I've found a few documents that list nearly all the msoShape types, but nothing that nicely includes the parameters and modifiers. For example, adding a line based arrow, but not giving the options for arrow head styles.

Selection.ShapeRange.Line.EndArrowheadStyle = msoArrowheadTriangle

One of the more frustrating things too was that the msoShape class didnt align with the names of some shapes in the Insert > Shapes menu from the ribbon.

Is anyone aware of a nice resouce on the web or in book form that does this?
