Hi all

Today is a sad day because tomorrow MS will close the Excel newsgroups.
I want to say that I hade a great time in the Excel groups the last years.

Sharing knowledge is a great thing

After tomorrow we must use the MS forums and I hope it will
give me the same fun as I hade with the newsgroups.

Maybe this page will help you if you start using the MS Forums and not like the web interface

Thanks everybody for everything, see you in the MS Forums

i use this version of a bridge as it's much better than microsoft's. it
incorporates both answers and technet, whereas microsoft's needs two
separate bridges on separate ports,

I'm still hoping that a reasonable number of news servers will continue to
carry the newsgroups, and that therefore the groups will be able to continue
providing help to users. I'm not currently planning on shifting to the MS
forums, so to any who don't plan to stay here in the newsgroups, thanks for
all your help over the years.

Hi David
Hope you change your mind if they close these newsgroups, you'll be miss by
many.
There's only a handful of experts (Gurus) and you're one of them.
Hoping to see You
John

David,
Please reconsider. The Bridge works well and working directly in Answers in
not that much of a chore.
You will be sorely missed if you do not make the transition - I need someone
to trap my odd silly mistake!
best wishes
Bernard

Will google groups be "picking up" the new forum's archives in due course?

Indeed!

So far I've been using the web interface over there. Yeah, it sucks, mostly
because I use an old unsupported browser, IE6, but it's not horrible!

I'm hoping the same thing. and others are thinking the same including Bob
Phillips.
google may pick it up. they seem to have everything else.
but if it's gone.....it's gone.
it's been fun for a long time and i wish everyone the best of luck. and may
God bless you all.

with warm regards

I have installed "The Bridge" since I use the newsgroup primarily to access
the Programming group. I did not see an Excel Programming group listed under
The Bridge so which group should one select Bridge to maintain that
connection to the programming gurus?
