Chapter 24. Project Workspace Integration with Office
IN THIS CHAPTER
Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) is tightly integrated with Microsoft Office, more than can be covered in one chapter of a book. Moreover, this entire book is dedicated to the EPM solution, in which WSS plays a core role. Therefore, this chapter's focus is limited to WSS as it is implemented in the EPM solution (the project workspace) and the important integration points with Microsoft Office. For more information about WSS in general, Microsoft offers two important references that pertain to Office integration: "The Integration Guide for Microsoft Office 2003 and Windows SharePoint Services" and "Good Better Best…," the latter being a guide to the specific features of WSS that work with each version of Office. Both these documents are found on the Microsoft website. This chapter first reviews project workspace integration points shared across Office products and then discusses the integration that applies to individual Office products.
Any reference to Office in this chapter implies the Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003: Access, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Word.
