About the Author

Bill Jelen , Excel MVP and the host of MrExcel.com, has been using spreadsheets since 1985, and he launched the MrExcel.com website in 1998. Bill was a regular guest on Call for Help with Leo Laporte and has produced more than 1,500 episodes of his daily video podcast, Learn Excel from MrExcel. He is the author of 39 books about Microsoft Excel and writes the monthly Excel column for Strategic Finance magazine. His Excel tips appear regularly in CFO Excel Pro Newsletter and CFO Magazine .

He lives near Akron, Ohio, with his wife, Mary Ellen.
 
Tracy Syrstad is a developer for the MrExcel consulting team. She was introduced to Excel VBA by a co-worker who encouraged her to learn VBA by recording steps, and then modifying the code as needed. Her first macro was a simple lookup and highlight for a part index, although it hardly seemed simple when she did it. She was encouraged by her success with that macro and others that followed. She'll never forget the day when it all clicked. She hopes this book will bring that click to its readers sooner and with less frustration. She lives near Sioux Falls, South Dakota, with her husband, John.

I bought this book to improve my VBA for Excel skills for a specific work-related project. Bill Jelen knows the most efficient means to write VBA for Excel...no argument there...and there's a lot of sample code, plus video as well...but I never hit that point where I got excited with my progress like I do with many of the other tech books. To be fair I think VBA for Excel is challenging for any author to teach and truly reach people. I was a bit disappointed with this read...so I ended up leaning on a book by John Walkenbach...Excel 2013 Power Programming with VBA. I found this book to be more helpful for me in understanding VBA syntax.

You won't find a more advanced book out there. There are books as good as this one, but this is for expert level users only while the others will be useful for intermediate or beginners.

There is a lot of good stuff on the web but this brings together a lot valuable examples that you do not need to hunt for

I wish I'd found this book sooner. It is very clearly and authoritatively written about various advanced topics. There is a thorough discussion of the "Advanced Filter" feature and also of user forms. Examples were carefully selected to illustrate various features without using an excessive amount of data to clutter things. However, just from the title, it should be expected that this book is not intended for those with little or no prior knowledge of spreadsheets and Excel. This book has been more useful to me than one with "Bible" in its title.

Love the book, but wish I'd gotten the actual book rather than the kindle version, I think for searching out particular areas of reference it would be easier with the physical book, but that goes for all reference books of this type and is my mistake. Helpful material, good explanations of what's going on and goes into a little more depth of VBA coding than your standard intro guide.

Its 2015, and KINDLE for me is the way. This book has EXCELLENT information in it, but the KINDLE version lacks a Table of Content. There are a few major chapter links but thats it! DO NOT PURCHASE KINDLE VERSION UNLESS YOU LIKE TO SCROLL!!!!

I have been writing Excel macro's for years, but all my ability and knowledge was self learned the hard way. I could never find a book or manual to answer my questions. The help function was almost useless, expecting you to pretty much know the answer to the question already. Then I found this book. It was all that I have been looking. This really answers my needs. I highly recommend this book, if your like me and want answers to
your Excel Macro/VBA questions.

I'm a long time Excel user but have only had limited experience in programming code of any kind other than working with excel functions. (I did take an intro to programming course in high school and my biggest accomplishment was programming a blackjack game on a TI-82 calculator). Having said that I wanted a book on VBA that would get into its most advanced and powerful features. This book covers a lot of useful features of VBA, but with that it does assume some programming experience and intermediate to advanced excel skills. Some of the material was difficult to digest at first, but I watched a video series on VBA on the internet in tandem with reading the book and in no time I was developing macros that automated a lot of reporting that I build at my work. I've already saved more time with that than the time it took me to read the book and watch the videos, and now I have some bigger projects in the pipeline. I recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn VBA, but would recommend using other resources around the web in tandem with the book if you are new to programming.

Like most code that is written in texts. it does not always work. This is one of the complaints of VBA, the code is not 100% portable from one environment to another. But the material covered gives the reader ideas on what can be done with VBA and it pretty easy to find version fixes on many VBA forums out there. It may be a frustrating experience for people new to programming. For that reason I only give it three stars. But most programmers who are going to create desktop application need to know environments change will affect their code and need to be cognizant to have code check the environment and adjust.
