3.0 out of 5 stars Wrox, please hire an indexing expert!!!
The book would get 5 stars from me if only Wrox would spend the money on hiring an indexer for this book. It's very difficult to quickly find which pages have the information you need on most subjects and keywords.

This review is from: Excel 2002 VBA: Programmers Reference (Paperback)If you are interested enough to read this review, then buy this book. Now. I have done quite a bit of programming ... The only problem was, I had never programmed VBA/Excel and was having a very rough time getting started.
I bought "Excel 2002 VBA Programmer's Reference". I sat down and started reading Chapter 2. Before long, I was so excited that I was firing up my laptop. Four hours after I started reading the book, I had a prototype up and running. This book is amazing. Chapter 2 gave me more useful information than I sometimes get from an entire book. ...
The authors are simply bursting with knowledge and give it freely. Ideas are expressed clearly and succinctly. Knowledge is well-organized and easy to find. Whether you want to approach the topic methodically or flip through looking for gems, you will find what you want here.
Getting the object model is a great bonus. I'm going to enjoy spending a few days going through this one.
4.0 out of 5 stars A Must have,
This review is from: Excel 2002 VBA: Programmers Reference (Paperback)The book is adressed both to beginners and intermediate users, not advanced ones though. It covers everything, however there were many occasions where I wanted more information. This is not to say the book is not a great value for money. After all, a complete vba book would probably need to have a couple of thousand pages, whereas with this book you can start programming even having read only chapter 2. If money is not an issue, you also need to buy Walkenbach's vba book too.
I found it easy to navigate through it, so I didn't think indexing was such a great problem as commented before me. The authors don't say too little or too much and they write very clear. The reason I didn't put 5 stars (if I had the option I would put 4.5 starts) was because I didn't like the second part of it, which is half the book and which mostly presents basic information.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!,

5.0 out of 5 stars That's the way...,
Ok it doesn't come with a CD, but it's no problem downloading what you need from the home page.
5.0 out of 5 stars Advanced,
The book is very lean althogh it is about 1000 pages, it does not offer plenty of examples but the code that is given is very useful. Although could not grasp the chapter's about com add ins and programming the Smarttags I would classify this book as one written in a very clear and approachable way.

Can't recommend it enough.

If you want to learn about programming in Excel there are two books that you must have near your computer.
I am glad that I purchase it.
