Microsoft Office Automation:

The programs in MS Office were designed to work with each other, this is often easier said than done, and few people or companies ever get to see the truly amazing power of Office Automation. What are we talking about here?
Office is made up of Word (word processor), Excel (spread-sheet), Access (database), Powerpoint (presentations) and Outlook (contact, calendar and email organizer). They can all be made to share and exchange data and information between each other and many other outside related applications such as Visual Basic programs and external databases such as SqlServer to name just a few. Although Office provides a way to do this through 'OLE' or Object Linking and Embedding, more effort is often required by writing VBA Macros inside the applications or writing VB programs to do the dirty work seamlessly behind the scenes. This is what WebSmith will do for you. If you can put into words how you would like your data to be shared, exchanged or manipulated, I can do it for you.
  • Using Outlooks address book to create newsletters or mass email's
  • Creating automatic Web pages from Access database information
  • HTML, XML, ASP, PHP and JavaScript coding
  • Displaying Access database content inside Web pages
