Summary

Smart tags offer a powerful dimension to Office document creation. Due to their customizable nature and the ability to send a value to a Web page, quite a bit can be done to enhance user activities. This chapter explained how to implement smart tags in Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Access. Access does not recognize terms and therefore requires a different approach to make the most sense of smart tag functionality.

The examples here are “simple” smart tags—they do not use DLL files. DLL interaction adds much more functionality to what smart tags can do. When smart tag DLL files are created, a programmable library (called the Microsoft Smart Tags 2.0 Type Library) is referenced. See the Appendix for resources. The examples in this chapter can interact with Web sites, a capability that in itself can be quite powerful when coupled with ASP or other Web programmable languages.
