What's New in Office 2003

The basic tools and techniques for automating Microsoft Office haven't changed in years. If you learned how to create, record, edit, and manage Office macros—small computer programs that perform tasks on your behalf—in a previous Office version, your skills are still relevant. The underlying programming language of Office, Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), is also (ahem) basically unchanged from its previous incarnations. Even VBA gurus would be hard-pressed to notice any significant changes in the past five years.


If you've already mastered macros, you can safely skim through the four chapters in this section and focus on the advanced techniques described in the examples. If your experience with macros is limited, however, we recommend that you read this section carefully. Creating powerful macros is a lot easier than you might think, and the payoff can be profound.
