    It's not yet clear (to me) whether this will occur in Office 11.
    Might not occur until Office 12.

    Word from a local MS techo this week is that it will happen from Office 11

    Howard,

    Thanks for the great link in your first post. However, if full support for Office is not due until 2004, how do you reconcile that with your (and Geoff's MS tech friend's) expectation that it will be supported in Office 11? - Office 11 is essentially completed already, with the beta due in November and release mid-2003.
    Wouldn't the link in your first post seem to point to it not being until Office 12? (guess we shall see soon once the Office 11 beta hits).

    Gary

    Re: VS .NET and Office (VS .NET and Office)

    I 've decided to not even think about Office being .NET-ized.
    Since I already had VB 6 Enterprise, I was able to qualify for getting VS .NET Pro upgrade for less than $200 after the $300 rebate.

    I sure hope that VSA and Forms in Office ? will be 100% compatible with VS .NET, at least with VB .NET.
    So playing with VB .NET enables me to prepare for the .NET-ized Office.

    Re: VS .NET and Office (VS .NET and Office)

    Woody states in his recent newsletter that Office 11 will be supported on Win 2000, Win XP, and maybe NT.

    That's consistent with Office 11 being .NET-ized as .NET is supported only by Win 2000, Win XP and NT 4.

    Note: I am posting the above opinion, based on statements made to me privately by SureLuck Homes and Docktour Whatson. I rarely question their whizdome.
