Getting Excel and the Web working together
When it comes to versatility, Excel shines very brightly. This chapter compiles a variety of very different things that Excel can do for you. Think of this as a secrets drawer that's filled with ideas and tips. We hope that you find useful and interesting things that you didn't know about. Explore this chapter just for the fun of it.
We start this chapter by showing you how to set reminders. Making input forms gets our attention next, followed by a discussion of how Excel integrates with Web technologies.
Excel is part of a powerful Office suite in which the applications are integrated with each other. The Office suite includes My Day and Entourage Calendar features in Entourage, which we talk about in Book V. Excel takes advantage of both these features with Excel's Flag for Follow Up feature.
You can leave it at that, or you can switch to Entourage's Task feature and do all kinds of fancy things with your Excel reminders. Figure 6-2 shows where your Excel flags are saved in Entourage, and we hope it entices you to consider investigating our Entourage and Project Center minibooks (Books V and VI, respectively).
