Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 is a wildly popular server product that offers an amazing opportunity to change the way you work. Paired with Microsoft Office 2007, SharePoint allows you to share and collaborate on Word, PowerPoint, Access, and Excel documents and databases; organize workflows; integrate Office documents with business applications; search across all types of documents and data; and provide these tools internally and externally on web sites for end users.
This book is a unique resource that walks you through a potentially overwhelming array of features and clearly shows you how to effectively use the SharePoint 2007 and Microsoft Office 2007 integration features. You'll begin with a review of SharePoint, then look at how it works and discover exactly what is available within SharePoint. You'll examine SharePoint's integration with Office—a topic that is not readily available on the bookshelf. Plus, valuable examples and succinct explanations used throughout the book can be easily applied in real-world situations and will help you take advantage of the extensive features of SharePoint and Office.
