Excel Tutorial Package-

An Introduction to Macro Writing For Programming in Excel

Improve the functionality of your spreadsheets by using macros.

 

This tutorial package is a comprehensive introduction to macro writing for Microsoft® Excel users, which teaches you how to program the software with Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) language. It starts with an explanation of the software facilities and then leads the reader through the steps to build simple macros. The tutorial then explains how to efficiently combine several macros into one so that a number of operations, both simple or complicated, are carried out simultaneously and automatically by one single mouse click or keyboard stroke. Examples of the code are included at frequent intervals in the tutorial and tips on troubleshooting are included in an appendix.

This is a short extract from one of the many examples of the VBA code included in the tutorial -

Rows("9:9").Select       ' The user selected the entire row.

Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown 'A row was inserted.

- showing the actual VBA code in black and an explanation of its purpose in green.

The tutorial compendium includes an introductory "Read me first" file and the tutorial file, both in Microsoft Word .doc file format, an illustration automated workbook file and a sample data workbook file, both in Microsoft Excel .xls file format, and 2 screenshot picture files. All files are packaged together in a WinZip® self-extractor in order to minimise download time and facilitate easy file decompression for those without file compression software on their computers.

Written with the non-technical user in mind, this tutorial package is a comprehensive introduction to macro writing for both home and business Excel users wanting to extend their knowledge of the capabilities of Microsoft's powerful Excel spreadsheet software. It would also prove to be useful resource material for the professional trainer. After working through this tutorial, the reader will be able to significantly improve the functionality of their spreadsheets.

Written by Chris Bales in conjunction with James Thorne, a Microsoft Certified Excel Expert, this tutorial was an immediate success when it was listed on the award winning AccountingWEB Internet site. AccountingWEB is the winner of the New Media Age 2001 "Best Media Business Website" award.
