103 independent software vendors (ISVs) have announced plans to integrate the Visual Basic programming system, Application Edition (VBA) v5.0, according to developer, Microsoft.

VBA lets you customise applications and integrate them. Since its launch in June ’96, the licensing program has grown enormously, and VBA is now used by some 3 million developers.

* Microsoft has launched an Applications Developers Customer Unit (ADCU), headed by Charles Stevens, formerly vp of Microsoft Far East. ADCU is expected to increase technical and business support to ISVs.

* Since its launch last month, Microsoft Internet Explorer v4.0 has been the subject of over 1 million downloads from the Web, according to the company. Seems its channels and dynamic HTML facilities, which drive content to the relevant terminals/individuals in real time, are most appealing.
