    request Word VBA advice (2000 & XP)

    I have been tasked with becoming the resident expert on Word templates and macros. The office I support as the system administrator has a lot of old templates that are used daily and we are going to be upgrading to Win2K and Office XP early this summer. I have quite a bit of experience writing VB 6, VB Script and programming in other languages, I have used Word through several versions but don't consider myself to be an expert user of the word processor. I am arranging some training but only find Word 2000 VBA courses nearby and soon. There are some Word XP VBA classes coming in 6+ months. My question is: is there much difference between Word 2000 VBA and Word XP VBA? Would I be wasting my time going to the Word 2000 VBA classes and thus should wait until I can attend the classes on the XP version?

    Thanks for the advice.

    Kevin is correct - in fact the changes to "Track Changes" and "Mail Merge" were the biggest changes in Word. I wanted to add that much of the discussion in the VB/VBA forum deals with Word.

    If you have experience in VB 6, you may find it more effective to skip the course and start with Steve Roman's book Writing Word Macros and some of the other books I mention in the Word VBA book list at my web site. Also look at the Microsoft Press step by Step book for Word VBA.
