Bill was a regular guest on Call for Help with Leo Laporte and has produced more than 1,500 episodes of his daily video podcast, Learn Excel from MrExcel.

Tracy Syrstad is the project manager for the MrExcel consulting team. She was introduced to Excel VBA by a co-worker who encouraged her to learn VBA by recording steps, and then modifying the code as needed. Her first macro was a simple lookup and highlight for a part index, although it hardly seemed simple when she did it. She was encouraged by her success with that macro and others that followed. She’ll never forget the day when it all clicked. She hopes this book will bring that click to its readers sooner and with less frustration. She lives near Sioux Falls, South Dakota, with her husband, John.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good reference book 8 Mar. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A reasonably good book that I picked up some good tips and tricks from. I have a very good understanding of Excel VBA and this book helped me understand some of the new 2013 features. It lacked some detailed explanations around the sample macros that may impact readers with less experience in VBA. This solution is to seek out web sites that explain the methods and features used in the examples.
A download site for the samples would also help to avoid a lot of typing

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The authors clearly showed great effort to teach VBA. But the book is not well structured, and the examples are not very 'friendly' for learners to quickly grasp the concept or application. The book is overly focused on advanced techniques and missed a lot of basic concepts. In general, it is not suitable for beginners who need a better book to guide them through.

As per normal MrExcel delivers a good introduction into the realm of Macros and VBa. This is the ebook version still trying to decide if it is better to get the actual book to flick through to find what you need.

Brilliant book. Very well written and plenty of pertinent examples. I am now going back on several chapters thinking "with a slight tweak I can use that too". Well worth the investment in time and money.
