Good morning,
I recently purchased Eugene Dakin's "I Wish I Knew How To... Begin Programming with Real Studio in Windows" from RSLIBRARY.com . I'm enjoying going through it and am looking at buying his other "I Wish I Knew How To" books for Word, Excel, and Access once I finish the Begin Programming with RS in Windows book.
The questions I have at the moment are:

1. Does anyone have a link to programs created (Word, Excel, or Access) after reading any books in this series I can download and check out?
2. Is this only for MS Office related products or can they be used to extend LibreOffice/OpenOffice programs (Writer, Calc, or Base)?

Thanks,
Joe

Hello,

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the book. :)

Unfortunately the programs go with the book. The many hours assembling and creating the examples complement describing the code, and this is purely a hobby (as a hobby is something you do that doesn't make enough money to feed the family). ;) The books are good value for the money and I would suggest viewing the table of contents http://scispec.ca/Realbasic/Publish/Publish.htm and index before making the purchase to make sure that there is code that you will be using.

This is only for MS Office products (maybe there will be a plugin for LibreOffice or OpenOffice in the future). Until these plugins are created, then the books are dedicated to Microsoft Office.

Happy to help,

Eugene
