Franke Rice wrote this one about automating Outlook from Access and doing some of the bread-and-butter tasks:

In my regular column, I show why you ought to have the XML Toolbox for working with XML and Word:

  1. Bill Coan is a great author. I was excited to see John Durant announce his article is now up on MSDN. This article is a high level overview of XML in office 2003 and its benefits. I think this has a large audience, as everyone knows XML is important to Office but do they really know why? I don’t think most people "get it yet." But they well. Also check out Bill’s product site: http://www.wordsite.com/….

    This site:
