    Anyone here a Microsoft MVP?

    I was considering seeing if I could get that designation. Microsoft requires that you be nominated by someone who is already an MVP. Does anyone know how this process works?

    I would be surprised if XOR LX isn't MVP.

    Also are you conversant with Debra Dalgleish? We post her link often. I'd be surprised if she isn't familiar with your "handle". According to MVP site she is MVP.

    Also teylyn is MVP.

    Re: Anyone here a Microsoft MVP?

    I've been nominated on two separate occasions in the past. The nomination is handled by the "Lead" MVP in your area, who will contact you and ask for details of your contributions to the Excel community. I presume this then goes to the group of MVPs (similar to our votes for Gurus), but I've never had any feedback from that first stage so I'm not sure.

    Hope this helps.

    No, it doesn't; it's all handled internally at MS.

    Re: Anyone here a Microsoft MVP?

    As a matter of interest.... is there any benefit from being an MVP? (As I know NOTHING about VBA I have no personal interest at stake... it'll not happen to me... but I'm just curious).

    Re: Anyone here a Microsoft MVP?

    Besides the (wo)men, fame and power, you get an invitation to the MVP summit where you can talk to the guys who actually design and work on the software and have input on that; you'll have opportunities to network, and present, if that's your thing; you also get access to the program leads, and some free software.

    Re: Anyone here a Microsoft MVP?

    OK Thanks rorya... I've done the networking/fame/power thing for 25 years+. Been there, seen it, done, it, bought the t-shirt. I've no interest in starting up again. Happy to remain plain wee me.

    Re: Anyone here a Microsoft MVP?

    I know of three others on this forum who have not been mentioned and have been MVPs. I believe in all cases they are not an active MVP.

    And yes, one of them I was PMing with the other day and they talked about the free software.

    And, how about Andy Pope and Jon Peltier!

    Andy is not one any more (unless they've seen sense and reinstated him) but Jon still is.

    Also, in Word, macropod (Paul) according to his signature block along with Ron Coderre. By his sig block, his MVP is not active at the moment.

    You might also be able to reach out to shg and davesexcel.
