This is one of the most useless Word programming books I've ever seen. Try, for instance, to find 'Print,' 'Printer,' or 'Printing' in the so-called index. There's not a word in the book about e-mail, yet that's one of Word 2000's strengths. Evidently Scott just copied things out of the on-line help.

There have been quite a few books on writing macros, but nothing that went into detail about true document automation. This book really talks more about the entire suite of Microsoft Office applications and shows how they integrate with Word. The information is somewhat scattered throughout the book, but is generally laid out well. After buying a few Wordware titles in the past, I thought I'd never get another one but this one is great. had trouble with cd though, but finally figured it out
