1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed - every example is wrong!, 2 May 2008
This review is from: Excel VBA in Easy Steps (In Easy Steps Series) (Paperback)
Hard to believe, but every single example code in this book is NOT how you should program - the code is very poorly laid out, and in some cases the code doesn't actually work as described. Even more confusing, a lot of the screen shots cannot be generated with the code that's shown in the example (the author has apparently created a different version of the same code so that he/she can take screen shots)

So in short, 10 quid down the drain, we're off to buy something else.

Excel 2007 which you obviously have, has an initial interface which is very different from all previous versions. Once you gain access to the code sheet (the VBE), its virtually identical to previous versions from then on. This book was written before this 2007 version appeared.

This book is now unobtainable. I would indeed be more than willing to pay the cover price and cost of postage if you wished to sell it.
