All About Gordon McComb Automation

Specializing in Word and WordPerfect Macro development, Training, Document Automation, and workflow shortcuts

Gordon McComb Automation is a consulting firm based in Southern California specializing in productivity enhancement through document automation. Macros, merges, PDF generation, XML, that sort of thing.

I am a widely respected expert in the use of document automation for productivity enhancement. I regularly consult with companies on the use of Microsoft Word, Corel WordPerfect, Visual Basic, PDF generation, XML authoring, and other automation tools.

Clients include Microsoft, Corel, Technicolor, Adobe Systems, Verizon, Avery-Dennison, Texas and California office of the attorney general, the Internal Revenue Services, The Scripps Research Institute, US Federal Trade Commission, numerous other US and state agencies, and law firms, both large and small.

I've penned several best-selling books on document automation, including WordPerfect 5.1 Macros and Templates, winner of PC Magazine's Editors' Choice and Computer Press Association awards, and the newly re-issued WordPerfect for Windows Macro Tutor. It was during the formative years of Microsoft Word that I co-wrote the definitive guide for that product on the Macintosh, Working With Word, published by Microsoft Press.

While not working on automation solutions, I spend my free time watching episodes of Agatha Christie's Poirot with my wife of 40 years, exploring the fun side of programming, teaching school students about amateur robotics with my trusty dog Rubie.
