Spreadsheet newsgroups

The primary Usenet newsgroup for general spreadsheet users is comp.apps.spreadsheets

This newsgroup is intended for users of any spreadsheet brand, but about 90 percent of the postings deal with Excel. My advice? Skip this one and head directly for the Microsoft newsgroups.

Microsoft has an extensive list of newsgroups, including quite a few devoted to Excel. If your Internet service provider doesn't carry the Microsoft newsgroups, you can access them directly from Microsoft's news server. You'll need to configure your newsreader software or Web browser to access Microsoft's news server, which is at this address:

msnews.microsoft.com

Table A-1 lists the key newsgroups that you'll find on Microsoft's news server.
