Format: Paperback
As a reasonably proficient Excel user who has learnt a few bits of VBA by recording macros and jiggling the code, I found this book to be an excellent resource for the step into writing proper code. As I came across different real-life problems I was able to find the answers quickly and almost without fail. I consider this the acid test of a manual such as this.
I even finally read the introduction and gained insight into objects, properties and the like which helped enormously.
My only criticism would be the very lengthy introductory chapters - the author states that the book assumes a reasonable knowledge of Excel and then spends 6 chapters and over 100 pages introducing Excel!
The writing style is a model of clarity with some nice light touches (no patronising 'VBA for dummies' humour). Very highly recommended

I'd already cut my teeth writing macros on a couple of databases I was using. I'd started by recording macro's using excels built in recorder, and then looking at the code and trying to work out what did what.
But pretty soon I hit brick walls, and needed something to help me understand what was going on properly and walkenbach came to the rescue!
This book is aimed exactly at the level I was looking for: someone who is computer literate and has a moderate level of VBA programming experience. The book leads you through the *very* basics before building on the knowledge step by step and eventually becomes just a reference for when you really get stuck or just forget a command. Its absolutely perfect for learning from, and even now, when I would consider myself capable of solving any excel problem using VBA, is a really useful resource.
Get it. It won't be money wasted!

Being a long time Excel user with some programming
background (but not in VBA), I found this book to
be an excellent way to learn VBA. Actually, most of the
time I have found it difficult to put it down!
Admittedly, it is voluminous, so if you want to get to
the point quickly, it can be a little frustrating. On
the other hand, it is full of helpful tips, so I find
it well worth the time spent.
