TechBookReport on 'VSTO For Mere Mortals'
TBR writes "In addition to the legions of professional Visual Basic programmers, there exist still more developers who use VBA and Microsoft Office for automation, customisation or the development of tailored office applications. Many of these are super-users rather full-time developers, but they have depended on VBA to extend and expand what it is they can do with Excel, Office and Access et al. While Microsoft has devoted a lot of energy to helping the VB 6.0 developer move to Visual Basic .NET (that later morphed into Visual Basic 2005, which many saw as an attempt to woo those developers who hadn't yet made the jump to the .NET universe), the road map for VBA developers has been less clear-cut."
