This Step-By-Step Workbook will employ the Visual Basic Application (VBA) programming language that is built into Excel. It will help to automate repeating operations and redundant tasks. Readers will begin by recording macros and storing the results in Visual Basic code. Minor changes can then be made using the Visual Basic Editor to troubleshoot problems. Techniques will be discussed to demonstrate how to select cells in order to format areas in an automated way. Variables will also be covered. These are great methods to help remember specific items for use at a later time. "If" logic will be discussed to help automate decisions and provide the logic necessary to make adjustments. Message and Input Boxes are ways to provide input and store results in a cell. Loops will provide the logic to repeat steps in multiple cells. Worksheet and Workbook manipulation can allow access data from multiple worksheets. The use of all these functions will automate the overall efficiency of a project. Furthermore, once you learn the Excel VBA program language, you'll be able to apply your VBA programming knowledge to other MS Office products, including Microsoft Access. What's is in the workbook?

Unlike other computer guides, students will not need to review lengthy procedures in order to understand a topic. All that is necessary are the brief statements and command paths located within the guide that demonstrate how a concept is used. There are many Step-By-Step Practice Exercises and more comprehensive Student Projects used to better understand a concept. Furthermore, students will find that this workbook guide is often used as a reference to help users understand concepts quickly. An index is also provided on the last page of the workbook to reference important topics as necessary. However, if more detail is needed for study, the Internet can be used to search a concept. Also, if student's skills are weak due to lack of use, they can refresh their knowledge quickly by visually scanning the concept needed and then testing them out using the application.
