5.0 out of 5 stars Great starting place., 16 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Microsoft® Office Excel® 2007 Visual Basic® for Applications Step by Step (BPG-step by Step) (Paperback)
Let's start with a bit of background information; I have a background in programming mainly forms of C and microcontroller based languages, so programming is not a new thing for me. I have found recently that Excel has been becoming more and more limited in its basic functionality so decided that I should lean VBA in order to argument it.
This book was first lent to me by my girlfriend who is an accountant and used VBA in Excel on a daily basis. I found it so useful in fact that I have brought it myself.
This book is designed for beginners it goes from the most basic recording operation to starting to create your own user forms. It covers every topic you need to make a spreadsheet more effective and user friendly. It is a great place to start if you are just learning to program, or like me haven't really used VB before.
I complete all of the sections in the book within two weeks finding them all useful and informative. They cover most everyday functions you come across. The only real limitation is if you are using an older version of Excel i.e. anything before 2007, but this should only be a minor inconvenience to someone who uses Excel on a regular basis and knows where menus can be found.
I have moved on from this book now into a move advances on that concentrates more on the programming, but I keep this book on my desk as it still works as a good reference if I ever get stuck.
