Pulling RSS data into Excel (or: Using Excel to Search Craigslist) – Part 2

This blog post is brought to you by Dan Battagin a Lead Program Manager on the Excel team. You’ll remember last time that we’d built a spreadsheet that searched Craigslist via the RSS feed that’s available for search results, and pulled the information into Excel using the little-used XML Map feature. Today, we’ll continue on where we left off, adding the ability to search multiple sites, and adding a little progress indicator in case the search takes a long time.

Some nice code editor features provided by the VS 2010 Power Tool Extensions

I’ve blogged in the past about the VS 2010 Productivity Power Tool Extensions – a free set of Visual Studio 2010 extensions that provide some nice additional functionality. You can read my previous blog posts about it here and here .  In today’s post I’m going to briefly highlight a few small, but nice, code editor capabilities that are enabled when you install the free extensions (and which I didn’t highlight in my previous blog posts).

VS 2010 productivity improvements – Part I

Every developer deserves a fantastic development environment that allows them to write, understand, navigate, and debug code as efficiently as possible.  After all, developers spend most of their time in the IDE. As we designed and built Visual Studio 2010, we let this principle guide the product, and I think we've delivered an IDE that raises the development experience bar significantly.  Starting today and over the coming weeks, I will highlight my favorite productivity features in Visual Studio 2010.  Some of them are small features, and some of them required a large, coordinated effort across the team, but each one makes developers' lives a little easier

Microsoft warns of Google Apps Sync for Outlook issue

Microsoft has responded, sort of, to Google's delivery of a free Exchange migration tool for Outlook users by trying to poke holes in the end result. More specifically, the company claims that the tool has a "bug/flaw" that causes Outlook search to stop working. Obviously, the solution is to stop using Outlook, but I'll let Google communicate that.

MVP Helmut Obertanner contributes code samples to the Outlook Developer Reference!

I am happy to announce that MVP Helmut Obertanner became the first MVP who contributed code samples to the Outlook 2007 Developer Reference on Office Online! The two code samples that Helmut contributed are about the Account object, published in a new topic " How to: Send an E-mail Given the SMTP Address of an Account " and in the Account Object topic. These code samples are in managed code (C# and Visual Basic), which will directly benefit Outlook developers who have switched to using managed code over the last few years.
