TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
My reference to the code comes from an article in the May 2000 issue
of Technical Communication (Role Conflicts in Office 97).
My best recommendation for actual software would be a visit to the
Microsoft web site and look for an Office 97 service release dated
after October 1998--when MS presented the code.
