Excel 2007 VBA Programming For Dummies

5 thoughts on “Excel 2007 VBA Programming For Dummies”

  1. When all is said and done, John Walkenbach only has three things going for him:

    One, he really knows what he is talking about. While this is a For Dummies book, and doesn’t go down really into the Power Programming (that’s another of his books) level, they couldn’t have gotten a more knowledgeable person to write it. You can take what he says in the book (or on the books companion web site just in case a typo made it through the editing system) as something handed down on stone tablets.

    Second, he really knows how to convey the information he has. I find his writing style to be well laid out, informative, almost a pleasure to read (true pleasure I associate with good Science Fiction, not any computer book).

    Third, he really seems to be a nice guy. While I’ve never met him, the home page on his web site (given at the very beginning of the book) has a has a link – Send e-mail to John Walkenbach. On a couple of occassions, I’ve had a reason to send him an e-mail asking a question. He’s answered promptly, curteously and save me a whole bunch of time.

    If you want a quick and rapid introduction to macros or VBA programming (in Excel these are the same thing), something that will get you started, this is an excellent choice. As you become a power user, buy his Power Programming with VBA book, and indeed his other Excel books.

  2. Perfect book for someone who has no idea what Excel VBA is all about! Before reading this book, the only thing I knew about VBA was that it was an acronym for Visual Basic for Applications. That’s it! Now that I have read this book twice, I am a confident everyday VBA user. This book is recommended for people who want to ‘get in to’ the world of VBA. Once you finish this book, you can continue exploring VBA with some advanced-level books. But, for basics, this is THE BEST BOOK! Thanks John Walkenbach!

  3. I went through this book in a few weeks time. It’s a great help for anyone looking to start in VBA for Excel 2007. The projects/examples were very helpful and I’ve used the ideas to expand on my own to help create some pretty IMO nifty little helpers to my excel sheets. There are surely many other books out there that claim to be good at this or that, but the dummy series puts a special spin on the way they present it that in no way makes you feel like a “Dummy”. I recommend this book to anyone starting out or for a semi experienced used who may just want a different perspective on the way to do things in VBA/Excel.

  4. If you don’t know any VBA on Excel, this is the book that will get you started! It is totally worth it if you don’t have any programming experience. It is so easy to read and it will give you the proper training in different areas until you feel confident to move into an advanced level. 🙂
