Integrating ColdFusion with MS Office
Microsoft Office is the 'de facto' standard in most business environments. In this session we will look at different ways of integrating with the two most used applications of the office suite, Word and Excel.
MS EXCEL: Come learn how to create, access and manipulate spreadsheets programmatically with the CFSPREADSHEET tag in ColdFusion. Although we will cover basic read and write features, we will also cover more advanced techniques like working with formulas and formatting, creating multiple sheets and even creating dynamic charts.
MS WORD: We will learn how to create, read and edit Word documents using OOXML, Mhtml and RTF formats. This will be accomplished without 3rd party tools, and without installing any software or extra libraries on the server.
FORMAT: Presentation with slides / live code review
