This quick hour showed you some of the ways you can combine the Office programs with Internet technology. Office and the Internet work together. Not only can you view Web pages with Internet Explorer, but you can also view other kinds of files such as Office documents and data. Your Web browser might already be part of your daily computing routine. One day, you will find that you do most of your work from Web-browsing software such as Internet Explorer, including editing your Office documents directly from a single screen that acts both as a Web browser and as a controller for your Office data.
The next hour, "Creating Web Content with Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint," continues the Internet discussion by explaining how to create simple Web pages from within the Office products. Once you do that, you'll be prepared to learn a new program designed to work alongside the Office programs: Publisher, starting in Hour 23, "Publishing with Flair Using Publisher 2003."
