    Beta of New Office (Beta of Newest Office)

    I seem to remember seeing a post from someone who has the beta version of the newest Office (not XP), and he included a screen shot showing that Microsoft is going to start charging to use the Wizards. Does anyone remember that? Also, how does one get a beta version of a new release to preview. Our company wants to upgrade our Office program (we now have 97), and I have been tasked with reviewing XP and the newer version. I have been using XP, but I don't have a clue about the upcoming version.

    Last I heard, the Beta was postponed until next month.
    Also, Beta is going to a very restricted list, each of which has signed an NDA, so it might take longer for info to leak out.

    It is expected, but known fer sure, that Office 11 will be .NET-ized and include both VBA and VSA.

    Thanks. I've read Microsoft's press release dated 10/22, but it didn't tell me much.

    Hi Melanie,

    I think the post about charging for Wizards was a joke on the Scuttlebut board. (At least, I hope it was a joke!) <img src=/S/yikes.gif border=0 alt=yikes width=15 height=15>
