  • Blog Post: Getting support/help on SharePoint and InfoPath

    As 2006 rolls in, it seems like a good time to remind folks about support resources for SharePoint and InfoPath. Each month I get one to several emails requesting help with a specific problem -- as intriguing as some of those questions are, I just don't have time to research and answer them. So, if you...
  • Blog Post: New SharePoint Magazine

    Wow, has it really been since September since I posted last? The weeks and months go by so fast! Well, rather than put off this post because it will take too long to write a "where I've been and what I've been doing" post, I'm just going to dive right back in... Today I received notice of a new magazine...
  • Blog Post: Redux: Excel tip: Split first name and last name into separate cells

    In response to my post on splitting names into multiple columns in Excel , someone (who listed themselves as "me") posted the following comment: very interesting, but there is a problem - when you split the names into two or three columns using this method and there are variations of first+last and first...

  • Blog Post: A whole site of SharePoint blogs!

    Hey, there's a whole site of SharePoint blogs . All the posts on the site are supposed to be about SharePoint, so seems like it should be a great resource (haven't had a chance to look around that much :)
  • Blog Post: Workflow on SharePoint

    I've had a number of people ask me about workflow on SharePoint, and while I've run across an article or post here or there, I didn't have a great place to point people to. However, on Lamont Harrington's blog I found a whole category of workflow posts . Here's the RSS feed .
  • Blog Post: Lamont Harrington: Great list of SharePoint Resources

    Today I was looking for some information for users on "Getting Started with WSS" (this is for the non-profit that I set up a SharePoint site for) and I ran across Lamont Harrington's blog . There are some really great resources here, I don't know how I missed it previously! One of the most useful posts...
  • Blog Post: Excel tip: Split first name and last name into separate cells

    Recently, I helped out a local charitable organization by printing some labels from an Excel spreadsheet that had a single column called “Name” that contained both first name and last name. City, state and zip were also in a single column. I offered then to clean up the spreadsheet by splitting...

  • Blog Post: Product Feedback Center

    Today, or at least for a good part of the morning, I kept watch on what was coming in to the Product Feedback Center . There are some good bugs and suggestions being entered, and it's thrilling to see. I even entered some of my own about the Product Feedback Center, based on my use, and verified a few...

  • Blog Post: Betsy's just fun, and very real, to boot!

    I was cruising Betsy's blog this evening, laughing my ass off. I have never met anyone so passionate about community as Betsy (maybe it's just that I haven't spent enough time with Jeff, or Robert, but maybe not ;-) She lives and breathes community, and does a heck of a lot of work, too. No, no, that...
  • Blog Post: Uploading multiple documents to WSS

    I recently answered a question in the WSS newsgroup about how to upload multiple documents to a SharePoint site. It's a question that comes up a fair amount around here, and my answer on the newsgroup was: When you click the upload document link, right under the text box where the file name gets...
  • Blog Post: Looking for answers on SharePoint and WSS

    The first place that I go when I have a WSS problem or question is the WSS FAQ , which has a ton of great information. This site is a joint effort of Mike Walsh, Jim Duncan and Larry Strange, and represents the majority of the most frequently asked questions from the WSS newsgroup. It's presented in...

    Jan Tielens and Fons Sonnemans , names you're very familiar with if you're a SharePoint Wonk like me, created a very cool SmartPart WebPart : The SmartPart is a generic webpart that can contain an ASP.NET user control. Nothing new you would say, but the SmartPart can give your user control access...
  • Blog Post: Look at all these SharePoint posts!

    I look away for just a moment, and when I look back, I see all these SharePoint posts on Amanda's blog! I've given you the category called “Microsoft Stuff” but as I've mentioned before, you really should be reading every post she makes -- she's just that good ;-) [Yeah, yeah, I know it...
  • Blog Post: Tablet PC in Bed

    I don't know why it's Tablet PC day, it just is. I just popped over to Channel9, and there, featured prominently in the front page, was the headline “ The Tablet PC has changed my life (in bed) ”. (See what I mean? Tablet PC day.) The intro cracked me up: “It's not often that...
  • Blog Post: Tablet PC Developer Center launched

    I just noticed that we have another new Developer Center, just in time for Tech Ed!

Yesterday we launched the Tablet PC Developer Center which has lots of yummy...
  • Blog Post: Celebration!

    Well, I was going to post this photo and point to Betsy's blog post about the celebration, but it turns out it isn't there. She had a busy weekend, I know, so I'm sure she'll be telling us all about it soon. In the meantime, this is Betsy and Kevin (from the MSCom Communities team) celebrating on Friday...

    MSDN will have a booth at the product fair that's happening during MVP Summit registration on Sunday evening -- I'll be there for most of the time, and I hope you'll stop by to say hello if we've already met, or introduce yourself if we haven't. If you miss me on Sunday, I've also wrangled an invite...

    I saw on Duncan's blog that the C# Team was posting answers to Frequently Asked Questions on their new blog, so I had to go check it out. Wow. They made the first post last Saturday, asking for questions and since then, they've been cranking out answers ! Pretty impressive.

    I found this comment by Roger Jennings to my previous post about the InfoPath 2003 SP-1 Preview and Toolkit for Visual Studio .Net, and wanted to share it: I've been working with InfoPath since the Office System 2003 beta. My only complaint (as a long-time Visual Basic programmer) was that the...
