I have to use visual basic for applications on word. Does anyone know a good forum, QA site (other than stackOverflow), or blogs? Looks like vba is a dying breed. An irc channel would be ideal.

Tried visualbasic.about.com? They do have some snippets here and there. Other than that Codeproject ? or codeplex for sample code?

I just typed in VBA Programming and got a ton of hits.  I even found this one:  irc.netsplit.de/channels/?chat=visual+basic

Can't guarantee it is exactly what you are looking for, but it seems to fit the bill.  (I am behind a firewall right now and can't connect to IRC to verify).

Microsoft has their own VBA forum: http://social.msdn.m...en-US/isvvba/threads

The late Shauna Kelly's site.  Not all about VBA, but tons of information: http://www.shaunakelly.com/
MVPS Site (click on navigation tab to get VBA specific stuff)... lots of good stuff here: http://word.mvps.org/index.html
Arranged a little weird, but lots of good tips on Word VBA here: http://gregmaxey.mvps.org/word_tips.html
Another site... not sure of it's usefullness: http://www.gmayor.com/Word_pages.htm


Some of this stuff (mostly about styles, but VBA comes up, plus maybe more that you'd find interesting) can be found in this topic:

Don't laugh, I am going to recommend a book written for Office 2000, that just happens to have never been updated for the three later versions of Office. Ok, go ahead and laugh now. The book is Microsoft Office 2000 Visual Basic for Applications Fundamentals by David Boctor. It is very no-nonsense and gives short practical examples that are right to the point: it's what the help file should have been (although it is very basic).
If bad things happen to other people, it's karma. If bad things happen to me, it's kismat!
