Format: Kindle Edition
I have taught programming with VBA in Excel and the students were surprised at what can be done and I must confess that I was as well. As an experienced programmer and one that has taught programming courses using nearly ten different languages, I appreciate what can be done in VBA. The combination of the native capability of Excel with what can be done with programs makes for a powerful tool if you know how to use it.
The primary difficulty with writing a book on programming is to determine where to start, in other words what skills do you assume the reader possesses. That is a significant decision, for example, if you cannot assume that the reader knows the basic data types then you must explain them. I have discovered that students know the difference between a decimal and a whole number but must be told that they are different inside a computer. Similarly, the decision must be made whether or not to explain what objects are and the difference between a call by reference and a call by value.
Cook develops some lengthy examples that illustrate the basics of VBA programming and if you assume basic knowledge of programming concepts they will be fairly easy for the reader to understand. If that is not the case then a few trips to a quality reference may be needed. Cook takes a reasonable and defensible approach to the assumptions made regarding reader knowledge.
The reader is taught how to import data in various formats, creating and testing a simple macro and using it as an add-in, creating a film list based on genre that utilizes most of the basic structures such as object, functions, subroutines and tests as well as the fundamental control constructs. A reader with some programming experience could use it for self-study and an instructor could use the major example as a detailed illustrative project in a short VBA course.
