I'd cross-post at Woody's Lounge: http://www.askwoody.com/askforhelp.php. My
experience is I get virtually instantanious answers that are wholly
accurate.

For those who aren't aware:

*Woody Leonhard* <http://www.askwoody.com/> writes books about Windows and
Office. His latest works — Windows Vista All-In-One Desk Reference For
Dummies <http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0471749417/ref=nosim/isbnat>and
Windows
Vista Timesaving Techniques For
Dummies<http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0471749417/ref=nosim/isbnat>—
explore what you need to know about Vista in a way that won't put you
to
sleep. He and Ed Bott also wrote the encyclopedic Special Edition Using
Office 2007<http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0471749417/ref=nosim/isbnat>
.

If you were to go to a M$ developer's conference that features Office
products, chances are Woody's one of the key presenters.
