IMPORTANT NOTICE about Howard

To those who have come to rely on Howard’s expertise and have missed his postings, I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that Howard had been quite ill over the past year.  Unfortunately, he passed away on April 1, 2011.  This website will remain available as long as possible.  If there is anything on it that you reference, I would suggest that you copy the information asap. 

According to his wishes, my plans are to make the domain name available so that anyone interested could contact me, Rita Kaikow (Howard’s sister), about making arrangements to acquire it.  BIDs for the domain name can be sent to me, Rita Kaikow, at rkaikow@lisma.org.  Please include detailed contact information (full name; address; email; phone; etc.) and description as to why you would be interested in acquiring the domain name.  I will review the documentation as well as the offers.

Cross-Platform Word macros

Prior to Office 97 for Windows and Office 98 for MacIntosh, Word macros were programmed using WordBasic. Since Office 97 and Office 98, Word macros are programmed using VBA (Visual Basic for Applications). Macros may be written for both Macintosh and Windows platforms. The following are some thoughts on this subject:
