About this book

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.

About the authors

Ty Anderson is a partner at Cogent Company in Dallas, Texas. He spends his time consulting and building software using Microsoft technologies. In addition to consulting, Ty is a Microsoft "Most Valuable Professional" and writes frequently about Microsoft products including Visual Studio Tools for Office, SharePoint, Office, and SQL Server, and his work has been published on MSDN, Devx.com, DevSource.com, Simple-Talk.com, and CIO.com. Those who know Ty best stand in awe and amazement of two things: 1) His incredible good looks and 2) his cynical and sarcastic (and sometimes offensive) behavior. Look for him at any tech conference as he will be wearing his yellow Oakland Athletics hat. Say hello, and as he might just offer to buy you pint. Ty presented sessions at 2009 Tech-Ed and was a speaker at the fall 2009 DevConnections conference. You can read his latest ramblings on all things technical at his blog: http://www.officedeveloper.net.
