If you're an experienced Office user who wants to use XML to unlock data, or one of the many IT professionals who wants to learn about XML implementation in Office 2003, then this is the ideal book for you! No prior XML or programming experience is necessary. (But optional code snippets and downloadable examples help illustrate the advanced tips, tricks, and techniques in the book.)
Popular author Matthew MacDonald introduces you to XML standards, like schemas, XPath, and XML transforms. Then he explains the philosophy of XML, and shows you how to transform data in the Enterprise using XML technology. This book will enable you to maximize the tools already within your reach.
You'll learn to feed an Excel purchase order into an XML inventory management system. Or you can create a Word document that contains a newspaper article and "reads" information about resume candidates, then generates a new summary document&emdash;without even installing Office. The document revolution has now begun!
