  • 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: SharePoint Links Updated

    The SharePoint Links on the right nav of my blog have been updated. I've been remis, and there are lots of good bloggers out there.

  • 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: 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...

    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.

    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: 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...
  • Blog Post: Wow, first time in over 5 years!

    After reading in several blogs about David Allen and his book/process Getting Things Done , I decided to give it a try.

    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...

  • Blog Post: SharePoint List as secondary datasource

    Jan Tielen s has a great post about using SharePoint Lists as a secondary datasource: The InfoPath Service Pack1 adds some nice features to InfoPath, there a few that I really like.

  • Blog Post: Working with Korby

    I got to spend Friday afternoon talking with Tommy and Korby and then collaborating with Korby on a brief demo that we're going to do together for a leadership team.

My only complaint (as a long-time Visual Basic programmer) was that the...
  • Blog Post: One of the joys of working with Duncan

    I've talked before about our InfoPath form associated with a SharePoint (WSS) library that we use for status reporting ( ). I use a 'week of' field and custom views for grouping status reports for a specific week. The date needs to be set to the same date for all status reports for that week, otherwise...
  • Blog Post: A new box, on the way!

    Having our SharePoint intranet site hosted by our corporate IT department has lots of good points, and a few bad points. One of the frustrations for me has been the lack of administrative privilages on the box (which hosts many WSS sites besides ours.) Don't get me wrong, it's understandable, but still...
