Neither the nor the tags has very many questions posted to them, but they are currently two distinct tags.

Since they are obviously the same thing, can we combine them?

If not combine them, would it be more practical to simply remove the tags given their low usage and the very generic concept they represent?

Uncommon (low number of question) doesn't make a reason for removal. The thing I'm more concerned about is whether they are useful or not. – nhahtdh Jul 25 '12 at 14:08
I agree to some point, but I couldn't give you a clear threshold. However, I would argue the tags aren't very useful. – Gaffi Jul 25 '12 at 14:31

The questions that are using this tag are specifically referring to this object.

Retag to (since the object is singular) and remove it from the few questions that are not Excel VBA related.
