I bought the book in the hope of a crash course in Sharepoint Designer. Unfortunately it has turned out to be more of a crash than a course. I dod not currently have my own site collection, so therefore am unable to carry out many of the exercises. This is particularly frustrating when it seems fairly obvious that many of the sample files such as CreateDVWP.aspx and DataSourceTest.aspx could easily have been included without the requirement to load a WSP file.
Is it possible to have these files separately?
