Microsoft Office XP
The microsoft office suite is an immensely powerful developer’s tool because of its Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming extensibility. Word, Excel, Outlook, and Access all have labyrinthine object models that offer features that quickly become indispensable when developing report output. In this chapter, we’ll examine Word’s MailMerge and Table objects; Excel’s workbook, worksheet, and cell hierarchy, as well as its graphing functionality; Outlook’s e-mail capability; and Access’ report writer. In addition, you’ll also see examples of such VBA-controlled applications as Lotus Notes and the Adobe Acrobat Writer.
