VO stands for Vehicle Order, it's also known as an FA (FahrzeugAuftrag which is vehicle order in German). It's a listing of all the option codes associated with your car. It tells the coding/programming software (whichever tool you happen to use) what options and modules are in your car so it can properly set the correct values in the vehicle's software.

There isn't a way to get into coding options without connecting a laptop to your car and using the right software.
