Overview

Office 2003 has been enhanced to improve development and integration with Visual Basic business applications. And that's what this book is all about: providing a set of real-world, VB-oriented business applications that utilize, customize, and extend Microsoft Office applications! From presentation and document generators, to a budget consolidator and a timesheet system, this book is packed with applications to improve your productivity.

This book is not merely a reference for the Office development platform. Instead, it is about building useful applications with the Office platform and solving specific business problems. The code and sample applications remain the focus, though key transferable programming skills will be highlighted at each stage. Throughout the book, author Ty Anderson demonstrates a variety of approaches from cutting-edge to more traditional. This includes:

Each chapter presents a separate, fully-functioning application that is ready for use (or can be easily adapted to suit your own business requirements). So if you are a Visual Basic developer (6.0 or .NET) interested in building business applications with Office 2003, this book will provide exactly the skills you need.

    Excellant idea book!

    I¿ve purchased many programming books over the last 25 years and found Mr. Anderson¿s book to be so interesting, I thought I¿d actually review it. Many books I¿ve bored through give many not-so-real-world examples though they do get you to a finished program. Office 2003 Programming: Real World Applications actually has some good examples of programs that are actually usable. Mr. Anderson ties VB.NET OOP with Office 2003 utilizing things such as web services, client-server apps and more. I felt that each chapter was well thought out and fairly complete. While not the text for a first time programmer, a relative novice could still utilize the text and examples. Well done Ty!

    good use cases

    The emphasis of the book is given by the subtitle - 'real world applications'. Anderson essentially provides 9 use cases of programming MS Office 2003; one per chapter and written in Visual Basic. These cases can be valuable to you on several levels. Firstly, if you are new to Visual Basic, then the book gives extended examples to improve your understanding. Secondly, and obviously, to see how you can program the various and myriad components of Office 2003, from the UI to accessing a database and using XML. Very nontrivial, as you might appreciate from the level of detail in the chapters. Thirdly, it is to find that one of the chapters actually fills a current need, and so you can just copy its code, perhaps with only some simple changes. While the book certainly suggests you can do this, it may actually be rare in practice.
