While reviewing traffic to some of our MSDN content, I noticed that the Office Visual How-tos we've published on the MSDN Library are getting lots of page views!
Developers seem to like this content type since it provides a short article, code sample, and video. This content type provides quick demos that show you how to work with specific features provided by different Office products and technologies.
We've covered a broad set of topics, such as Open XML, SharePoint, WSS, Word, Outlook, Access, InfoPath, and VSTO.
Here's a list of the most recently published Office Visual How-tos:

We have identified some Office 2007 content gaps and missing code samples and we will start building a new set of Office Visual How-tos. One of the things we've been asked is to provide the code of these articles as code sample downloads. We plan to start publishing the code sample downloads to the MSDN Code Gallery. Also, we are exploring the option of publishing the most popular videos in Zune format.
Please leave a comment with your suggestion of any Office, SharePoint, and VSTO topics/code samples that we should provide in the future. I'll keep an eye on this blog entry.
