Part V: Microsoft Of.ce as a Whole > AppleScripting Office

21. AppleScripting Office

If you're like most people, you probably didn't upgrade to Office 2004 because of its vastly improved ability to work with AppleScript. But if you're not using AppleScript to streamline your complex or repetitive tasks, you're not tapping Office's true potential for efficiency and speed. For the first time, you can control all four Office programs with AppleScript—the Mac's very own programming language. (In other words, Microsoft just gave PC owners yet another reason to switch to the Mac.)

To the delight of experienced scripters, the potential for unleashing the power of AppleScript on Office 2004 is now boundless. Fortunately, you don't have to become a scripter to reap all the benefits, since there are hundreds of ready-made scripts you can download and use. This chapter will give you a taste of what you've been missing and get you started with a few ready-to-use scripts.
