Beth Massi shot a couple of great episodes last month on dnrTV! If you are interested in learning more about the Open XML SDK, and how to easily access it using VB.NET XML Literals, be sure to check them out.
dnrTV Show #137: Beth Massi on the Open XML SDK Our good friend Beth Massi returns to dnrTV to introduce us to the Open XML SDK, Microsoft's tool kit for creating and manipulating Office 2007 documents.
dnrTV Show #138: Beth Massi on Open XML and Office Beth Massi is back to talk about how to generate custom Word documents and Excel spreadsheets with LINQ to SQL and XML Literals in Visual Basic .NET.
Links from the shows:
dnrTv is a fusion of a training video and an interview show. Training videos are typically sterile and one-way. Let's face it, you can only take so much. But you need to see the code! In this format, you get the spontaneity of an interview talk show, and the detail of a webcast or training video.
Carl Franklin is the host of the wildly popular mp3 talk show .NET Rocks!, which he started recording in August, 2002. dnrTV launched on January 12th, 2006, the same week as .NET Rocks! show number 159!

XML Literals in VB.NET rock! The syntax feels a bit ugly at first, but the power more than makes up for it!
