'----------------------------------------------------------
' Preconditions:
' 1. In the IDE, reference Microsoft Calendar Control's ActiveX
'       control file:

'    a. C
lick Project > Add Reference > Browse tab.
'    b. Browse to:
'       c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\MSCAL.OCX
'       and click OK.
' 2. Specified part document and bitmap exist.
'
' Postconditions:
' 1. FeatureManager design tree is split, and the splitter is
'    below the FeatureManager design tree to which the
'    tab was added. Drag the splitter to verify.
' 2. Interactively close the part document.
' 3. Interactively set test to 1 in the macro.
' 4. Rerun the macro.
' 5. FeatureManager design tree is split, and the splitter is
'    above the FeatureManager design tree to which the
'    tab was added. Drag the splitter to verify.
'
' NOTE: Because the part document is used elsewhere,
' do not save any changes when closing it.
