Looking for testers

Recommended Posts

The Microsoft Excel section of our new Macro Express Extended Library product is currently under development and we are looking for a handful of testers having Microsoft Excel 2000, 2002 (XP), 2003, or 2007.

 

You must have Windows 2000, XP, or Vista and be an experienced Macro Express 3 user having a good working knowledge of Microsoft Excel (workbooks, worksheets, ranges, cells, formatting, and so forth). And you must play well with others, like Floyd does ... only better :blink:

 

If you are interested, please email Floyd or Joe. We will begin going through the requests starting this weekend. Seating is limited, so vote early and vote often ;)

 

Warning: if you are chosen, test the functions only on Excel data that you can afford to lose. DO NOT test on anything critical like your company's year-end tax data, or for that matter, any of your employer's data. Do not use these functions on anything important. They are, after all, just being developed and it is possible that we, or you, might make a mistake.

 

In return for your efforts, active testers will receive one free license of the Macro Express Extended Library when it is released. Hey! You in the back ... stop snickerin' it's all we got. B)

I'd would like to add my name to your tester list. I use Vista & Office 2007

 

I could probably do part-time beta testing too, only if you really need 2007 folks.

 

My Resume:

-Excel 2003; tons of experience, some of it with VBA.

-Excel 2007; quite a bit of experience, a little with VBA.

-Windows Vista; Just got my first Vista machine, still learning, but it's pretty similar to XP. Okay with reg tweaks, etc.

 

-General Geek time; painfully too much--only for the last 10 years though.

(You have to be a 20-year geek before you're an "UberGeek," right?)

 

Currenlty running Vista and 2007.

 

Only looking to volunteer part-time.
