I "met" Dian a few months ago through her Word VBA group. Since then, I have learned so much. Dian is so involved with her groups and cares so much that you feel comfortable to ask any Q (even silly ones). Together with Greg Chapman and Dawn Crosier they provide the best learning opportunities for me and I guess many others.

Feel free to join us to learn more about the next version or learn how to download your own beta version to give a test run. This group will continue on as a support group once Office 2007 is released to businesses in Fall 2006 and the general public in January 2007.
