Using COM Components

Any Web page generated by one of the Office applications can contain Common Object Model (COM) components (formerly known as ActiveX controls). That means you can take advantage of the tens of thousands of COM components currently available, both free and at additional cost, from suppliers all over the world.

COM components let you leverage your efforts in many ways. Say you want to put together a Web site with Word 2000, but you really need a navigation bar for the main page—a fly-out or drop-down style menu that the user can click and be transported to some other location. Creating a navigation bar like that in Word is possible, but it would take forever, and the end result wouldn't look very professional. But you can buy a navigation bar (for example, from Quiksoft at http://www.quiksoft.com) and have it working in minutes.
