Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
As powerful as Microsoft Outlook is "out of the box," it's way more powerful with a little customization. We're not talking heavy-duty Visual Studio legerdemain: just stuff a reasonably sophisticated user can do with Outlook's own tools and features -- and some expert help. Well, nobody's more of an expert on customizing Outlook than Microsoft MVP Sue Mosher.

In Microsoft Outlook 2007 Programming, Mosher teaches the skills you'll need to create your own custom rules for handling messages; to search/replace data throughout Outlook (handy next time the phone company changes area codes); to create custom reports in HTML or other Office formats; even to build Outlook Forms that mimic the forms your business already uses.

Mosher, who's now written seven Outlook books, is singularly competent at demystifying the more technical areas of Outlook. She guides you comfortably through Outlook 2007's VBA environment, basic VBA design, and the elements and "grammar" of effective VBA coding. You'll get up and running quickly with simple forms; then learn how to extend them with fields and controls.

Next, she illuminates Outlook's "object model," showing how to control and automate most of the data you can enter into Outlook: items, messages, message recipients, attachments, and more. Now that your application is working, Mosher turns to polishing it, taking some control over Outlook's core user interface (to the extent that Microsoft permits). There's also a very practical chapter on deploying your Outlook Forms to users, and then managing it once it's in the field.

Mosher's primary audience isn't the full-time professional Office developer: It's the millions of people who just want to solve their problems as efficiently as possible (and maybe with a little extra panache). Bill Camarda, from the August 2007 Read Only
