Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Microsoft InfoPath 2003 Kick Start builds upon the reader's knowledge of the Microsoft Office system to enable them to get right to work making productive use of InfoPath. It is targeted specifically at the early adopters - developers who will use their knowledge of XML and Web development to build sophisticated applications with InfoPath front ends. However it is also, carefully structured to enable "front line" InfoPath users to quickly glean the information they need to be productive when developing their own InfoPath forms - and when working with developers to create more involved InfoPath applications.
