The authors in one if not the best author I've run into. John Walkenbach makes the book both a begginners to experts level endeavor, his knowledge of excel makes the book useful for ALL versions of excel although he concentrates on the 2003 version
I actually have two copies since the first one started falling apart from use - and that is rare for me.
ALL excel people should consider buying this book, as I said good practices are part of creating a successful project and very important in getting a good spreadsheet together.
I am not a computer programmer, but I need (from time to time) to develop an app.
I don't use the book anymore, but the book sure came in handy when I needed it.
PS I first wrote this review after the book first came out in 2004 --- I don't know why it's no longer on Amazon. I've repeated it at this late date because the book is still available for sale.
doing through Excel 2003 Formulas first. It is also written by the same author. When I purchased this book I also bought the Excel 2003 Bible as I was rusty on Range Names.
If one was intending to read this book front to back, I am sure they could learn quite a lot about Excel and VBA, but as for using it as a tool to expand on existing knowledge and/or as a reference...it falls short.
Most of the examples did some neat things, but trying to build upon them to fit a specific need indicated just how limited the explanation of how the examples work are.
I often ran across things in the examples that I would later find a use for, but then be unable to locate them since they were buried in some seeming unrelated portion of the book, and the index was just about useless.
If you want to start learning VBA or if the examples in the book do what you need then this may be the book for you, but if you are expecting to build upon the examples and/or use them as a reference for writing your own custom macros/tools, I would suggest looking elsewhere.
Just reading one page in this book pulled me out of a ticklish problem constructing a menu. The code examples are complete and always accurate (and well annotated).
My first 15 minutes with this book saved me the cover price in not having to stop what I was doing to search the web for an obscure instruction.
If you do any programming in Excel; buy this book!
