Microsoft have been trying to kill off VBA for years, and have finally come up with a worthy successor. Find out what Office Scripts training we offer, or book on one of our two-day Introduction to Office Scripts course (the first one is scheduled in May - it takes a LONG time to write our courseware and exercises!).
Many thanks to the 60 or so people who responded to our five-question survey. You can see what the results look like in Microsoft Forms - and see what actions we will take as a result - here.
APSE is short for the Association for Public Service Excellence - their mission is to help local authority members to benchmark performance and exchange best practices. We helped them a while back with the design of a new database, and on Thursday of last week Sam presented a Power BI report showing a possible way forward to APSE members at the 2022 Performance Networks conference. You can see Sam in action here - or book him for your own event!
The November Power BI update includes the roll-out of field parameters for dynamic slicers, more flexible shared multiple axes and (at last) a (slightly unsatisfactory) way of debugging DAX. You can also use the paginated report visual to include Report Builder/SSRS reports within a Power BI Desktop report (this blog shows how to publish and then embed paginated reports). And finally on Power BI, we've tweaked our two-day Advanced Power BI (Data) course to include sections on Power Apps and Power Automate, and to make some other sections optional (details here).
To make our Microsoft Word course manuals available online we're having to turn them into PDF documents, without losing any fidelity along the way. Read how we got on with Aspose Words.Net to accomplish this in C#, rather than VBA (there's an Excel.Net version of this utility too called Cells.Net).
For this year's quiz we invite you to complete 12 series. Don't worry if you don't know all of the answers: your chance of winning the prize - a (gasp!) £100 Amazon voucher - will be proportional to how many questions you got right. You can start your Wise Owl festive fun here!
What does a "fully immersive multi-purpose station for gamers and professionals" look like? Well, you'll certainly stand out in the office. Have a look to see whether the Orb X is the ideal present for the geek in your life (yourself?).
