Don't Miss Out

Approximately ten days ago I released the ninth edition of WordTips: The Macros. (It is really hard to believe that it has reached the ninth edition! But since it contains information culled from 21 years of publishing WordTips, I guess it's to be expected.) The book consists of hundreds and hundreds of tips packed into 786 pages. It has been updated with the latest tips and to reflect information about all versions of Word, 97 through 2016.

You can find more information about WordTips: The Macros at the Tips.Net store:

Why am I bringing this up? Because right now you can get your own copy for 30% off the regular price. In a few more days (after Wednesday) the price will go back to normal and you won't be able to get this title at this price for at least two more years.

Don't miss out; check out the site today.
