This FAQ is posted weekly.- more or less
Please save us all some time by reading it before posting to the
news group.

This newsgroup is about VBA - Visual Basic for Applications -
which is the programming language for Word 97-2002 (macros).
There is a longer FAQ with more questions and links that is
regularly posted in the non-VBA Word newsgroups. You may want
to check that out as well.

Reading this article will help you get a quick and meaningful
response to your question rather than just more questions for you.
It may keep your message from being screened or bounced.

A few basics, though:
(1) Be nice; everyone answering questions here is a volunteer.
(2) Post a question in only one newsgroup generally. If you
_have to_ post in more than one, post a _single_ message and
put both newsgroups in the header for that _single_ message.
(3) Do not attach anything to a message.
(4) The only really stupid question is the one you don't ask.

The reasons for the requests are spelled out on the web page.
