Format: Paperback
Let me put this in clear, concise and 'hands-on' language. Before reading this book, I knew little about VBA. Right after reading it (and actually working through 80% of its examples), I was able to build a custom mortgage analysis application using MS Excel as the user interface and MS Access as the data source. I was able to set up and manipulate dropdowns (comboboxes) within spreadsheet cells to present parameter choices, and to programmatically create and manipulate graphs and pivot tables to display results in more meaningful formats. I also made extensive use of arrays and functions to cope with the many iterative calculations required. To add to all this, I was able to use DAO to query and update the Access database. Since then, I have been working on VBA for Access etc., only to find out that the foundation laid by John Walkenbach carries over excellently to all MS Office applications.

I did not buy this book for a month because of some of the review comments, but then did go ahead and buy the book. I disagree with the negatives - this is an excellent book for anybody who has to write VB code for Excel. And there aren't THAT many bugs in the code, and those that are there are very minor. The comment about the "help" is unwarranted - I've been living in the "help" for two months now. Of the 3 books I have on this topic, this is the best one.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By S. Davis on June 4, 1998
Format: Paperback
The book was one of the most useful I read in learning to create Excel custom applications. It is written by some one who has actually struggled with making it really work. Other books often tell you VBA in Office has almost unlimited tools to accomplish a task and suggest VBA online help for further details, not a lot of help. The is written for Excel 95 not Excel 97 and needs an upgrade. Office 97 completely overhauled dialog boxes, toolbars, and custom menus. There are very few books that actually have the depth to help a serious designer of a VBA custom application, this is one. If you create Excel custom designs for others to use then add this book to your shelf.

This book has saved me months of time in my struggle to write proficient VBA code in Excel. I'd recommend just looking over everything on the CD before reading the book. You will probably find the answers you've been looking for without even turning a page. The author has also included an order form to get the full version powerpak utilities for free (except for postage) and the source code can be purchased for a mere $20. I just received mine in the mail. Haven't had a chance to look at all the source code yet because I've been too busy playing Yatzhee (one of the three time wasters included with the powerpak. The tooltip utility included in the powerpak allows you to easily modify the tooltips on your custom toolbar buttons. Isn't that cool

Visual Basic for Applications can be intimidating to the
converted 1-2-3 power user. This book provides the right
combination of in-depth information, source code examples,
and experienced advice. It is well-written with margin
symbols to help one navigate through the text. Since
we have not yet switched to Excel 95, I particularly liked
the symbol which marked new features unavailable in Excel 5.
Power Utility Pak, for which a free coupon is enclosed, has
numerous useful tools. We're purchasing a copy of this book
for each of the analysts in our corporate office - and
expect a solid return on our investment.
