Automating Other Office 97 Applications

Because Excel 97 is a member of the Office 97 suite, you can take advantage of the features of the other Office programs as you develop your Excel automated solutions. Here are some examples:

  • Use Word 97 to generate letters, memos, multicolumn reports, and other text formatting that would be difficult or impossible to generate in Excel.

  • Automatically generate PowerPoint 97 slide shows based upon the data in your Excel workbook.

  • Use Access 97 as a permanent storage location for data that you've entered or compiled in Excel. Access provides advantages such as greater storage capacity, indexing for faster retrieval of data, and flexible querying and reporting facilities.

  • Interact with Outlook 97 to automatically update your calendar, contact list, or e-mail Inbox.
