Subject: Office 2000 VBA for SDS

Dear Morris,

An article in Micro Times indicates Office 2000 has increased risks of improper access to information via Internet. Can you comment on analysis for balancing requirements for stronger communication and better security?

This raises a second point of interest. Have you worked with VBA cited in the article? In your opinion, would it be practical to use VBA to create an effective SDS application. What would we give up by taking this path; what would we gain? The ability to integrate applications, cited in the article, is helpful.
