  • Blog Post: InfoPath Question: Easy way to specify order of forms to be merged?

    I'm thinking that the answer to this question is “No” because of an article I found on MSDN that said InfoPath gets the list of forms that were selected in the Merge Forms dialog box. More than one form can be selected, and forms are processed in an arbitrary order. but does anyone...

    Today, or at least for a good part of the morning, I kept watch on what was coming in to the Product Feedback Center .

    I was cruising Betsy's blog this evening, laughing my ass off.

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.

  • Blog Post: Tablet PC in Bed
