Excel VBA Programming for Dummies Aug. 13 2010
By Lois Coppic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am an accountant--not a programmer and I am only about 1/2 way through the book. I need this information to improve my job skills. I need to complete Excel spreadsheets faster, more accurately, and less manually repetitiously. I am learning many new things that are going to help reach that goal. My previous experience with Macros only included what you could write with the keystroke wizard method (which is very limiting).

Starting around Chap 7, Mr. Walkenbach starts giving a lot of examples of code that is setting dimensions; static counters, offsets; cells vs ranges, etc, but he doesn't complete those examples with the actually code that would run some macro after the previously defined dimensions. I would prefer to see how each actually work; thus I need an example of some code in each case so I can type it and run it. Maybe in some following chapters, he get to it, but by then I will have to go back and review.

Guess this is why this is a book for "Dummies"--looks like I qualify. LOL All in all, I'm getting along well. And occasionally, he throws something funny in--which gives me major amusement considering how intense all of this language is for non-computer programming techie like me.

I recommend this book as a good starting place for someone like me who has some experience using the Macro Record tool in Excel.

Good for a beginner. Sept. 2 2011
By Hopewell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is good for someone with no experience in Visual Basic. The examples are very manageable, however, I would have liked to have seen some more complicated code. But, I realize that this book is for dummies and it does fulfill the needs of a laymen.

I would suggest this for anyone who is excel savvy and wants to learn the basics of Visual Basic. I have enrolled in a Visual Basic programming class, since reading this book, and it has given me a good foundation for understanding this Windows based programming language.

Great book, great author April 6 2011
By Erik Kiste - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are several reasons that I recommend this book. The book covers topics with just enough depth that you don't feel overwhelmed. It provides links to resources to get a deeper knowledge but it always keeps the target audience of beginning VBA programmers in mind. The chapters and examples provided are also very easy to follow and not overly long so that it's something that you can pick up and put down again as you have time.

Another reason is that the author's conversational writing style makes the book easy to read and helps relieve some of the boringness of learning VBA programming concepts.

Lastly, based on my experience and other reviews that I've read, the author is very helpful and quick to answer questions. I had a question about one of the examples in the book and it took him all of 11 minutes to reply to my e-mail with a helpful response.

It is a perfect book for beginners. Every thing is clear and explained step by step. I finished the book and already started with more complex ones and i can say that the basics of coding i got from this book is helping me learn quickly the more complex features.

Great Book Aug. 27 2010
By JM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a truly great book that helped me with Excel VBA for a project at work.

That being said, this book is purely for introductory purposes. Assuming you know how to work with Excel, this book will greatly help you get a start on VBA for Excel. This book doesn't cover the kind of topics you would find in the Power Programming in Excel VBA book, but it covers really basic topics for a beginner.

If you're a beginner to Excel VBA, I would highly recommend this book as a starting point for learning to master it.
