This 3-day instructor-led course enables participants to enhance and extend the capabilities of Microsoft Excel® and other applications in the Microsoft Office application suite. Students can use VBA to perform tasks that would be difficult or impossible to do using only worksheet functions, and can automate a wide range of tasks involving the collection, processing, analysis and visualization of data. This course will give participants a good foundation for understanding, creating and using VBA in your own Excel workbooks, showing you how to work with data across different applications, and how to package the macros and functions so they can be backed up, moved to other computers and shared with other users. Note: to ensure success in this course, students should be an experienced Excel user who is comfortable creating and working with Excel workbooks, including tasks such as entering worksheet formulas, using absolute and relative addressing, formatting cells and creating pivot tables and charts. This level of skill could be acquired by taking the Microsoft Excel: Parts 1, 2 and 3. For a shorter course option, also review VBA with Microsoft Excel (EXVBA1).
