    MS Agent actors

    <font color=blue>WOW 5#53</font color=blue> gave a link http://msagentring.org to some actor files for Agent.

    Any way of using these in Office instead of Clippit et al?

    I dropped Helen Feddema a line to see how she's using them. She has some sort of program she's cobbled together. With a bit of luck we'll talk her into posting it...

    There's an easy way to add more Assistants to Office 2k - no VBA needed.

    When the downloaded agent files are run, they put the .acs actor files in WindowsMsagentChars; just copy them to WindowsApplication DataMicrosoftOfficeActors.

    Now they'll appear on the Select Assistant menu.

    Thanks to NerdBird at http://www.nerdbird.dk/assistant/nerdbird.html for the tip (and I got the Bird).

    Note, as Helen says, not all Agents work, and a short-cut in Actors pointing to Chars didn't work.
