Welcome to my blog. My name is Rickard Olsson and I will try to be your host and guide you here. I am a middle-aged man running my own IT-consulting business for more than twenty years, focused on Microsoft Office for the last fourteen years. I will try to tell you about my first stumbling steps into Office 2007, the new release of Office with a lot of great new features for many of the common and advanced users. I have given this blog the name ‘XLRocks‘ because I guess you are as many of my clients ‘Rocks on Excel’. This is meant to be a meeting place for all interested in exchanging experience around MS Office 2007.
I have the feeling that the new Office release has a lot of Rock’n-Roll built into it. What is your opinion? I really hope you will take your time and share your thoughts about Office 2007 here. Having more than a decade’s experience of Office I feel like a solid rock and I hope that many more of the real rocks in Excel and other Office products will participate in the creation of this meeting place.
One of the new sexy features of Word 2007 is the blog-support. So what is more natural than starting this blog by giving the new Blog-functions of Word 2007 a chance?
Conclusions: This blog is organized like this. If you are in a hurry and just need facts, just read this section. Here are the conclusions of the story above.
· If you use new software, be aware of that anything your brain fantasizes is available, is not there.
· Dreams come through in release 2 of a feature, is another aspect of the same fact.
· This is true of Microsoft today, but in history it was not, and for most other SW-suppliers it has always been the case.
· Clicking on a photo in this blog will give you an entry into ‘Virtual Earth’ where it was taken.
· Clicking in the text below the photo has two links, one giving you more information of the area.
· And the second gives you more of my photos in the surroundings when I was there.
