    There was a related thread (although not about VBA specifically) in the General Office Solutions forum recently: <post#=311203>post 311203</post#>. I don't think you'll find such a test plan.

    Would you be testing a configured image of Office XP, or how Office XP impacts your custom applications? The first, I imagine consultants would have developed years ago for assisting clients with roll-outs. The second, I fear you are on your own.

    Do you mean you're out to use one of those automated test tools that simulate user keystrokes and data entry and then feed this into your existing app? Or do you want to know how upgrading XP may/may not mess up existing Office automation code?

    For the 2nd question, my experience with 3 versions of Excel and VBA tell me that you're SOL. <img src=/S/bouncenburn.gif border=0 alt=bouncenburn width=31 height=31> I have had to stumble on my own to find many undocumented 'features' and inconsistencies between simple features/functions (VBA I'm talking about not Excel formulas). It's pure trial/error and no MS document exists to tell you otherwise. If you've developed an extensive VBA app I can guarantee that it'll fail in other versions of Excel.
