Event Description

Save Time and Effort by Implementing VBA Concepts to Automate Excel

Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) is the programming language that is built into Excel (and other applications in the MS Office Suite). VBA is used to automate tasks that would otherwise have to be performed manually by pressing combinations of keys and selecting items with the mouse, and if that sounds like a macro, it is.

Although Excel has a macro recorder, there's a limit to what it can do. So where the macro recorder's functionality ends, VBA takes over. At a more advanced level, VBA enables you to, amongst other things, build your own worksheet functions, create automated workflows, and control and interact with other applications.

This session by renowned Excel trainer Mike Thomas is aimed at assisting the advanced users of Excel with power excel concepts, including VBA. Even those with little or no programming experience who wish to "dip their toe into the VBA water", can benefit from this session. Knowledge of VBA will save you, your colleagues and your customers, hours of time by allowing you to automate any Excel-based task or process. If you've never used VBA before and youd like to learn about the basics of VBA and automation, this session is for you.
