I used Matthew Harris' "21-day" book to teach VBA during Spring '99 quarter at South Puget Sound Community College. It is not really made for the classroom (no CD-ROM, instructor must make up his own quizes, etc.), but generally good in the first two thirds of the book. The last few chapters begin to falter, however: #19 does not treat Automation (OLE) too clearly nor explain certain oddities (e.g., unexpected 'recursion' when linking an Excel file to Word). Also, a promise of showing how to use Windows' own FileOpen screens in Chapter 20 is never fulfilled. Chapter 21 is a poorly-coordinated grabbag of leftovers not presented well. Still, the book is probably the best in this poorly covered market. Although it treats of Word and Excel only, with over 1,000 pages it is a fairly good introduction to the subject.

Hi -
I had to write and tell you what a great job Matthew Harris did in "Sams Teach Yourself Visual Basic for Applications 5 in 21 Days (Third Edition)". I am a computer consultant and a Certified Technical Trainer. Good books, especially at the neophyte level for programming, are hard to find. Most of them make assumptions that the reader has prior programming knowledge, which is often not the case at all. I purchased this book initially as a recommendation to someone who wanted to learn VBA, but had no prior experience even with macros, much less programming.
The book is clear, clean, and thorough in its treatment of the subject. It is also pleasantly devoid of typos, grammatical errors, missing text, etc. which makes me crazy in too many of the books I read, especially computer books. The examples make sense and flow smoothly from the very basic to gradual, increased complexity. I will use this book whenever possible in my classes on introductory VBA.
Thank you for providing me with such an excellent tool.
Sincerely,
Linda Dawn Bozick, President, Enterprises, Inc.

A clear intro to VBA that also teaches basic programming concepts that anyone who has not programmed before will be very grateful for. Someone with any programming experience would be better off with an "In a Nutshell" type book to get acquainted with VBA 5. Having had no programming experience of any sort whatsoever, I found this book to be a great resource and would recommend it to anyone in my position. (Though I do acknowledge it's no good for Access, Outlook etc., I wasn't expecting it to be.)

I cannot emphasize enough the utility of this book! I had NO programming experience but since reading this book, I am prolific in writing code. The book progresses logically and slowly step by step allowing a self-paced environment. The best attribute of this book is that it is also a great reference book. I dont expect this book to ever be obsolete. Well worth the price and time/effort needed to read it!!

Good overall lessons. However, I have not worked my way through the whole book yet, but at a glance I have noticed that there is not much treatment of Access issues, which is why I wanted a VBA book. I went for the book thinking it would cover each application equally, but I should have looked more closely. Still, Access, Outlook, etc., should not be listed on the cover with equal billing.
