Office 2003 Launch Event

Posted in Sql and Xml | General at Wednesday, 22 October 2003 08:46 Pacific Daylight Time

Today I attended the Office 2003 Launch Event in Los Angeles. I skipped the Keynote since I assumed that it would be mostly marketing information which really didn't interest me. I ended up only attending one of the developer sessions which turned out to be quite interesting.

The thing I like best about the presentation: Associating an XSD with a Word document and then saving off the document as either XML data only or an XSL document that can be combined with the XML to “remake“ the document.

The idea of using word to make an XSL seems pretty cool and I'm planning on playing around with this and seeing how well it interacts with SQL Server 2000's XML features. This, of course, means even more for the next version of SQL Server.
