I just wanted to call out my all time favourite Excel resource, the Excel-l Excel developer listserv email list. its hosted here.
I know lots of you are already registered, but I wanted to drum up a few more members, for a couple of reasons
- The main one – its a superb resource, any Excel, VBA, Access and other apps based questions will get a sensible answer here
- The number of registered users is declining. I don’t know what the cut off is but at some point if membership gets too low, and questions don’t get answered then even more people will leave and the best non-beginner Excel resource will disappear.
So if you are not already registered then sign up (it’s free), you’ll be able to search the archives straightaway, and maybe join in the e-mail debates, and help others out. For a few years I had mine on digest mode which means just one email a day, but now I have a bit more time I’m back to getting every email individually.
I hope the decline in numbers isn’t a sign of dwindling interest in Excel/VBA developments, although that would not be a surprise.
Do you have any explanation for the decline? do you know better resources?
