XML support. Microsoft Office Word 2003, Microsoft Office Excel 2003, and Microsoft

smart documents, and programmable task panes.
With these improvements, you can manipulate, analyze, and format data from
your most critical business systems and can customize documents and task panes
so that they integrate with XML data sources and outside programs. The enhancements
also reduce development time with XML. With Excel 2003, for instance, you can
use the visual mapping tool to connect a user-specified XML schema to fields
in your spreadsheet, and customize smart tags to bring relevant business information
directly into your work. (Access 2003, Outlook 2003, and PowerPoint 2003 each
support third-party and customized smart tags.)
Access 2003 provides a powerful set of tools that are sophisticated enough
for professional developers, yet easy to learn for new users. With Access 2003,
you can create or use powerful database solutions that make organizing, accessing,
and sharing information easier than ever. Excel 2003 enables you to turn data
into information with powerful tools to analyze, communicate, and share results.
Excel 2003 can help you work better in teams, and help protect and control
access to your work. In addition, you can work with XML data to make it easier
to connect to business processes.
PowerPoint 2003 includes new tools to help you create, present, and collaborate
on presentations that have more impact. Keeping in touch and communicating
with customers is essential for any business. A complete business publishing
and marketing materials solution, Publisher 2003 can help you reach out to
customers. With Publisher 2003, it's easier than ever to design, create, and
publish professional marketing and communication materials in-house. And with
