I agree with Wayne on Woody Leonhard's Word info. Woody's Office Watch
(WOW) is a good, free newsletter in which Woody gives subscribers lots of
great Microsoft Office tidbits. I get it and find it quite valuable.
At the risk of starting another deluge like the one I started on the
WORD-PC list, I wanted to let list TECHWR-L list members know that I
compiled and summarized all the reviews I could find a few weeks ago on the
MS Office 97 upgrade. In the summary I include a list of the Web sites that
had the original reviews. If you'd like a copy, please e-mail me directly.
DO NOT POST REQUESTS TO THE LIST. Sorry to yell, but members on the other
list (including me) got tired of seeing people's requests. :~}
I'll send the summary to you as a self-extracting file. The summary is
quite large, or I'd just post it to the list. I'm trying to get a version
reading for putting on the Web but haven't had the time to finish it yet.
