The next NYC SharePoint Developers User Group is tomorrow, Wednesday, October 20th! So REGISTER NOW
if you haven't already! Remember that the security desk will have to call Microsoft and have them put you in the computer if you're not registered, meaning that it could take you as much as 20 minutes to get upstairs. I'm going to be sending the list to Microsoft at about 4:00 on Wednesday so that you can now register at the last minute and still be on the list.SUBJECT
: Word Automation Services in SharePoint 2010SPEAKER: Ken Cooper, Enterprise SharePoint Architect

What about mail merging a template and data into a set of PDF files (one per mail merge)? Now you can! If you want to bone up a bit on this exciting new technology before the meeting check out this link: "Word Automation Services: What it Does
