Used this way the book is simply outstanding and most users probably don't need anything more than this book, but I'm not one of those people.
I purchased "Professional Excel Development" by Bullen, Bovey, and Green at the same time and was awestruck at the depth of their knowledge and their passion for making Excel the only software development tool your company will ever need. In short, and I say this with the greatest admiration and respect, they are absolutely insane in a very knowledgeable and useful way.
The biggest problem with "Professional Excel Development" is that readers are expected to know a LOT more about Excel and VBA than average and Walkenbach nicely addresses that issue. He's also a lot more readable than the other authors and so can be used in conjunction with them to clarify the points that they are making.
Regardless of how you use this book, it is a very good for just about any level of VBA developer and firmly earns the 5 star rating.
I generally have a hard time reading books about programming because they are either 1) way above my head, 2) don't provide "real-life" examples of when you would want to use the code, or 3) just plain boring. Not with this book...
It teaches you how to build tools - like progress indicators, advanced userforms, and general utilities. I've been able to take a little bit from each chapter and create stellar spreadsheet applications. This book has saved me hours... if I can't figure out how to write a block of code, I don't spend time searching Google - I go straight to the book.
Best Reason: it comes with a CD full of macro examples that mirror the chapter concepts. I was able to read the chapter, then go to the computer and try it out (with the code already written out for me). I picked up new concepts much faster than just reading it on my own.
Excellent for Excel 2003 or 2007.
- Go to the Wiley dot custhelp dot com website, and click on the "ask a question tab.
- Fill out the information on the form, and tell them that you bought the book from Amazon in Kindle format, and that you want the WHOLE CD content.
- Save yourself some time (UNLIKE I did....) and make an electronic copy of your Amazon receipt (i.e. PDF or something they can see), and attach it to the message...there's a place to do so at the bottom of the window.
They responded to me within an hour. At first, they wanted to just give me a link to the PDF version of the book, but one response to that (and with a different Wiley rep) telling them I needed the whole CD solved that. They will snail-mail you a copy of the CD ASAP. Okay, it's not quite as nice as being able to just download the content online, which is why I gave this FOUR stars instead of FIVE---it's the "hassle factor" that cost them a star.
Otherwise....GREAT book. This book is much more than a VBA primer. It definitly does assume a reasonable amount of Excel experience, but let's face it -- should you really be trying to develop Excel apps if you don't already have some knowledge of the product? Walkenbach goes through a bunch of stuff he thinks you should know about early on in the book, without going into too much detail...Read more ›
