This review is from: Professional Excel Development: The Definitive Guide to Developing Applications Using Microsoft Excel and VBA (Addison-Wesley Microsoft Technology) (Paperback)
I have been writing Excel macros for sometime and when people wanted me to write macros for them I found this book invaluable. Before reading this my `applications' where merely taking the standard Excel interface and using the Active X functions it provides to maniple data as required. Now my applications have very specific interfaces and functions, most people who have seen them have said things like `I did not know Excel could do that'. If you are new to programming, Excel or Macro writing then this book is not for you (yet), the book is written assuming that the user knows a bit more then the basics. This book is all about creating an application, I.E using the readers existing knowledge to create that application. That said there is considerable coding included with practical examples showing how to implement the functions presented. Nearly everything is included in the accompanying CD and that is my only bug with this book, not all the code fragments are included with the result that some of the functions must be entered by the reader.
