This chapter brought you closer to understanding XML and seeing the potential impact that XML, if adopted, could have on your Excel processes and procedures. Can you continue to work with Excel without using XML? Sure you can. But XML is not the paperless office. XML will not go away anytime soon. It is fast becoming an industry standard that is used in an increasing number of environments. The new Open XML file formats promote interoperability, exposing new opportunities for Excel programmers to integrate with and expand to platforms that were previously out of scope. Congratulations, you have taken your first steps toward being able to develop the next generation of Excel solutions.
