Word Links

There is so much “stuff” out there, including the “stuff” you have come across on this site. So where to go for good information? Of course yes, a search engine is usually a good place to start (usually, not always). But if you like what I have written here, then you might want to know where I go for my information.

so here’s a short list of my own most useful Word information sites.

Of course, when I am looking for help on a specific topic, Microsoft is where I normally start, since Word is a Microsoft product.

http://www.office.microsoft.com

http://support.microsoft.com/find-solutions/office/

And if you have a problem, chances are someone else has already had it and has already asked for help on it (there truly is nothing new under the sun). So a good place to check where other people asked for help (apart from your friendly search engine of choice) is:

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/word?tab=Threads

Since I try to keep up to date with developments in the world of Word, I also read the Microsoft Word team’s blog: http://blogs.office.com/b/microsoft-word/

There are also a range of definitive articles on the Word MVPs site (http://word.mvps.org).

 Also useful is Shauna Kelly’s Word site: http://www.shaunakelly.com/word

  Then I have, for years, been a Word Tips subscriber (http://wordribbon.tips.net). This is a great resource–Allen Wyatt sends out e-mails (daily or weekly, depending on your preferences) with great tips on Word.

I have, of late, also found the Word-PC e-mail list to be quite useful. As with the Excel lists (see my Excel links), this is a place where you can post queries to, get help from, and learn from, some of the best and brightest minds in the world of Word.
