After much debate and polling, Excel has received a more prominent position on these forums. I've also thrown in there Google Sheets for good measure.

Jon,

There are soooo many other matrix-oriented software programs out there. It might not make sense, but you *could* includes others I would think. Like for instance, Quickbooks? I a lot of small business people use that. I've come across many. Maybe it's way out of left field though, and has no business on the forum....

I have considered creating another forum, with a linked forum. This means you click the link to go to that category but it takes you to a new site instead.

do you have enough pounds over there to be doing that, sir? :p or would it be an add-on domain? those are cheap, at least here in the USA. and also here in the USA, every company offers literally hundreds of subdomains for free with a primary.

There is a ton of cost in starting a forum: software cost, hosting, domains, and the big one...time.

well I don't run forums Jon, so I would have no idea. but a forum is just a domain, isn't it? If you already have a hosting plan, what's wrong with just starting another forum as an add-on domain to that hosting plan? or are the hosting companies different over there in Big Ben land?

I would use the same host. But the forum software itself costs $150 to $200. Then add-ons. Renewal fees. The domain cost is negligible. And then it is very hard to get a forum established and thriving.

you would know more than me about that, man. If you do decide on it, I hope it works for you. Regarding the cost of forum software, it seems that it's not that bad....

Hmm, what about an Macros and VBA section under Excel?

Good points Gina. I want to see if any traction happens in the Excel forum for a while. It is a test!

hey, not to mention a sticky informing new users on how to use the code generated by the macro recorder as a learning tool!
