Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
On the surface, it doesn't appear as if much in Excel 2003 has changed. There are a handful of new objects and the user interface is largely the same. But beyond a superficial glance, you'll see that there are fundamental shifts implied by the new features: Lists, XML, web services, .NET, and InfoPath build a framework for entirely new ways to exchange data with Excel. In fact, that's much of what Excel 2003 is all about--solving problems that deal with teamwork-- collecting and sharing data, programming across applications, and maintaining security.The latest in our Developer's Notebook series, this guide introduces intermediate to advanced Excel VBA programmers to the newest programming features of Excel 2003,--focusing just on what's new--so you can get up to speed quickly. Light on theory and long on practical application, the book takes you directly to the topics you'll want to master through a series of hands-on projects. With dozens of practical labs, you'll be able to decide for yourself which new aspects of Excel will be useful or not in your own work. And best of all, you won't have to buy an expensive revision of a legacy Excel programming tutorial to learn about the new features--if they're covered there at all.Excel 2003 Programming: A Developer's Notebook shows you how to work with lists and XML data, secure Excel applications, use Visual Studio Tools for Office, consume Web Services, and collect data with Infopath. Each chapter is organized into a collection of labs, each of which addresses a specific programming problem. You can follow along to complete the lab on your own, or jump ahead and use the samples the author has built for you.The new Developer's Notebooks series from O'Reilly covers important new tools for software developers. Emphasizing example over explanation and practice over theory, they focus on learning by doing--you'll get the goods straight from the masters, in an informal and code-intensive style that suits developers. If you've been curious about Excel 2003, but haven't known where to start, this no-fluff, lab-style guide is the solution.

This is not a book for the average Excel user.
This is not a book for those wanting to learn how to do VBA macros for Excel.
This is not a reference book for Excel, VBA, or anything else.
What it is, is a good book. The author, Jeff Webb, is an experienced writer with several books on programming topics for the Microsoft platform. Serious programmers will expand their view of Excel as they read and as they do the many examples that are complete with code and screen shots. The 294-page book makes a great week-end reader.
1.) IT developer at large company
2.) In charge of all IT purchasing
3.) allowed to set and enforce all IT standards for
Office and all Web standards
The book focus' very narrowly to solve problems no one has,
a very typical example is how to download an Amazon.com object
so that you may use Excel to search Amazon. The author then mentions that Amazon doesn't parse the output as he would like,
so you have some clean up work to do.
If you have a screaming need to use Excel to search Amazon for John Grisham books, this tome is for you.
Otherwise forget it.
Perhaps the most intriguing is using it to access Web Services. There has been a huge buildup of Web Services Description Language, and a lot of speculation about what a successful Web Service would look like. Well, nothing yet has emerged as a killer app.
But Webb shows how you can use Excel to dip your toes into this field. Specifically, he indicates how to hook it into the Web Services of Amazon and Google. And along the way, you get to pick up some XML. If you don't know XML, this in itself is a good way to motivate learning it.
The utility of the example Web Services is that they can take some of the mystique and abstractness out of the subject, provided you spend the time to understand them. Simply as pedagogy, you can then assess future discussions on Web Services in a more experienced light. Separate from, and independent of, whether you'd ever want to use Excel to interact with future Web Services.
Of course, the book describes other topics. And you may well have no interest in Web Services. But to me, this forward looking aspect is the best part of the book.
I found the writing a little terse and stiff, but overall it was reasonable. The were too many screenshots for my taste, even given the 'notebook' style.
I recommend this book for anyone looking for a step by step guide to using the XML features of Excel 2003. If you don't know Excel all that well, or XML, or VB, then you aren't going to learn it here.
