    Moving VB/VBA posting from Word to VB/VBA forum

    I suggest that all VBA/VB related postings be moved from the Word forum to the VB/VBA forum.

    1. That's where they belong.
    2. Such posting could scare off visitors to the Word forum.

    You could say the same thing about the Excel forum. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> There are posters there who stress they do not want to receive a VBA solution. Anyhow, <UL><LI>VBA is an even more inherent part of Word than Excel. <LI>Trying to discuss issues excluding VBA (at least as an option) is a bit like typing with one finger per hand[/list]BTW nice to see that you have been unable to deliver your promised prolonged absence from the Lounge. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Moving VB/VBA posting from Word to VB/VBA forum

    I think about "board appropriateness" when reviewing threads on the Word board, but I very seldom move them. If the VBA is directed toward solving a common (or uncommon) problem with Word itself, it makes sense to keep it on the Word board. If, on the other hand, someone has a programming problem that doesn't involve any actual use of Word (e.g., userform controls), then certainly the fact that it might be hosted by Word would not prevent me from moving it. In between, I tend to go with the user's flow: I don't want to give loungers the impression that we're extremely anal about where to post questions that slop over into multiple categories. Everyone, just do your best, and everything will turn out just fine.

    Don't fret, I will follow up on my promise to be absent for a while.

    Some of us don't know VB from BS but might learn something in the Word Forum while we never go to the VB/VBA forum. Excuse my ignorance but doesn't the same apply to Access?

    Personally whenever the post involves more than about six lines of code I'm outta there <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15>
