Have you ever wanted to read/write a word document or an excel sheet from a program? In previous versions of office you had some options with Visual Studio Tools for Office or the COM APIs provided by these products but the file formats were proprietary and undocumented.

How cool is that? Well stick around and listen to my guests today Brian Jones and Doug Mahugh as they give us the scoop on the new possibilities.
