XML in Office 2003: Information Sharing with Desktop XMLby Charles F Goldfarb
Synopses & Reviews
Now Microsoft is bringing XML to the desktop, promising to greatly increase productivity for Office's over 300 million users. To take advantage of such revolutionary changes, users and developers need a guide to the Office 2003 XML tools and the technologies on which they are based. This book is the guide they need.
Book News Annotation:
Goldfarb (the inventor of SGML) and Walmsley (a consultant specializing in XML architecture) explain what XML and schemas are all about, how they help users share information, and how desktop XML enables easy integration of Office apps with back-end data sources and Web services. Individual chapters concentrate on topics like basic concepts, creating documents, spreadsheets, forms, web-based publishing, the XML language, XPath, datatypes, and web services technologies. The guide comes with a CD containing a trial version of InfoPath 2003.

A guide to the powerful new XML features in Microsoft Office 2003.
"XML enabled the transfer of information from server to server and server to client, even in cross-platform environments. But the desktop, where documents are created and analyzed by millions of information workers, could not easily participate. Business-critical information was locked inside data storage systems or individual documents, forcing companies to adopt inefficient and duplicative business processes.
"This is a book on re-inventing the way millions of people write and interact with documents. It succeeds in communicating the novel underlying vision of "Office 2003" XML while focusing on task-oriented, hands-on skills for using the product."Desktop XML affects every "Office 2003" Professional Edition user!
It transforms millions of desktop computers from mere word processors into rich clients for Web services, editing front-ends for XML content management systems, and portals for XML-based application integration.
And this book shows you how to benefit from it. You'll learn exactly what XML can do for you, and you'll master its key concepts, all in the context of the Office products you already know and use.
With 200 tested and working code and markup examples and over 150 screenshots and illustrations from the actual shipped product (not betas), you'll see step by step how:
