  1. Dick,there is one post with the title Office “14” – Microsoft Office 2010 does not exist,it just like an obstacle when i want to read your post one by one,can you move it or valid it? Thank you!

  2. I am VERY interested in attending you workshops. Please take your show on the road and be sure to include a stop in New Jersey.

    Hope to see all the gang soon.

  3. Also a stop in Atlanta. My VBA started as UDFs and has moved to automating Excel and Access. However, all I have learned comes from books and this website. I think workshops would be very helpful, but I can just barely swing the enrollment; plane tickets and lodging are out of my price range.

    Is there a price break for attending both workshops?
