RealData Dispatch - December 2008

Excel 2007: File Types, Macro Security and Other Mysteries

When Microsoft released Excel 2007, it deployed some of the most extensive changes to the product in many years. Some of these changes have implications that are not always obvious to the user and, from our point of view at least, are not always entirely welcome.

We've just posted a discussion of some critical issues about Excel 2007's new file types and macro security on the RealData blog. This is important information for everyone who uses Excel 2007, and we think it's essential reading for anyone who uses software like that from RealData - applications that take advantage of Excel's macro programming language to provide advanced functionality.

To view this article, just go to realdata.com and click on "Blog" at the far end of the home page menu bar, or click straight through to realdata.com/blog. We also invite you to add your comments and questions to this important blog.

Featured Resource - BiggerPockets

We mentioned this site some time ago, but it's worth bringing it back into focus. BiggerPockets has evolved into a seriously useful site for real estate investors. It has grown to more than 25,000 members and accurately bills itself as dedicated to Knowledge, Networking, Dealmaking and Marketing.

We can tell you from our firsthand participation that the forum section of the site is very active, very helpful, and covers a wide range of topics. The site is also well-moderated, so you don't have to sift through spam.

We think BiggerPockets is an excellent resource both for beginners and seasoned real estate pros. Visit the Learn section of realdata.com to see this and our other featured resources

Send Us Your Property Info and Get a Complete Analysis by Return Email

In our last Dispatch we announced a new service where we will take your data and run a real estate investment analysis for you. All you do is download a simple questionnaire, fill it in, and email or fax it back to us.

We'll run your information through our most powerful program, the Standard Edition of "Real Estate Investment Analysis." Generally within three business days or less, we'll send you a set of professional, presentation-quality reports in pdf format by return email.

We invite you to download the questionnaire, even if you don't need to purchase the service now.There's no charge for the form, of course, and you'll find it to be a helpful guide for collecting data whenever you need to do an investment analysis.
