If you have absolutely no experience then VBA for dummies is still - to me - one of the better places to start. The book is not as big and intimidating. However, after you've already written a few programs, this book is fantastic. Great step by step instructions. Lots of examples. Advanced sections are great. It will take me some time before this all becomes old hat for me.
If you were looking for something that uses VBA to link to other Microsoft applications. You should be good with this book. It goes into detail on how to interface with outlook, deal with sending emails, interface with Word or PowerPoint.
If you need to learn how to interface with databases, this is not the best choice. But there is no reason to believe it would be in the title or table of contents, so you really can't complain.
Will it replace the all mighty google. No, but as a supplement, it is excellent and a bit more structured. The explanations are far better than what you'd find on-line. There are tons of random helpful tips and history that - if you're nerdy enough to read the whole book rather than just use the table of contents and index to get to the sections you need - are pretty darn wonderful.
Oh, and for people who can't stand the upgrades in the new version of Excel, the author explains that stuff too. One reason to get the newer vs the older version.
help if you've spent some time reading other books on VBA, and Excel for that matter, and then you may be better able to judge
for yourself how he, more often than not, better explains the topic in clear and concise language. The reference has a profuse distribution of examples of VBA code. The text has 31 Chapters, and I am just into Chapter 9 at this time, but I am reading the
text, word for word, line for line, page for page, and performing some of the examples for myself. However, I have most, if not
all of Walkenbach's references on Excel and VBA for I personally feel these are great "go-to" references when you need a VBA
or Excel question answered (I currently have 7 of his books but may have missed some I have at work, including this same text
in the 2007 version). In a few instances, however, I have had to Google. The Appendix is thorough, and the Index is quite
extensive and covers most topics that I could think of, at least at this moment in time. There may be a few not covered, but one
must realize no text is perfect. I probably have 20+ reference texts on VBA. I rank Walkenbach at the top for his overall ability to better explain things, and thus allow me, at least, to "connect the dots." If you want an excellent first or fifth reference on VBA and
have Office 2010, get this text!
