Thread: Office/VSTO Forum?

    Office/VSTO Forum?

    Just wondering, what are the possibilities of starting a "Office/VSTO Programming" forum? Office is becomming a huge platform for developers with VSTO and when you include SharePoint it's even bigger. May help to have a specific forum for these questions moving forward instead of them being buried in the .NET forum.

    Just a thought.

    I agree that SharePoint is growing and getting lots of interest; however, we've tried VSTO and Office Development on some of our other, higher trafficed forums and they forums just don't draw a lot of traffic. If you can show five new threads a week on the topic in the existing forums for an extended period ( couple of months), then we will spin the topic out into its own forum area.

    The Office questions (primarily Excel VBA) get posted in the Classic VB section, and that seems to work well.

    I have seen five VBA questions in a week....and gone an entire month or more with no VBA questions at all. The VBA related questions we get really aren't either numerous enough or consistent enought to merit a separate Office section (at least not at this point.)
