From the Back Cover
"In this day and age of 'too much information and not enough time, ' the ability to get to the bottom line quickly and in a concise method is what excels companies to the top of their industry. The techniques in this book will allow you to do things you only dreamt of." -Jerry Kohl, president of Brighton Collectibles Develop your Excel macro programming skills using VBA instantly with proven techniques Automate Reports Handle Errors Master Pivot Tables Produce Charts Build User-Defined Functions Migrate to Excel 2007 Query Web Data Build Dialog Boxes Use Data Visualizations Automate Word You are an expert in Excel, but the macro recorder doesn't work and you can't make heads or tails out of the recorded code. If this is you, buy this book. Macros that you record today might work today but not tomorrow. Recorded macros might handle a dataset with 14 records but not one with 12 or 16 records. These are all common problems with the macro recorder that unfortunately cause too many Excel gurus to turn away from writing macros. This book shows you why the macro recorder fails and the steps needed to convert recorded code into code that will work every day with every dataset. The book assumes that you know Excel well, but there is no need for prior programming experience. This book describes everything you could conceivably need to know to automate reports and design applications in Excel VBA. Whether you want to automate reports for your office or design full-blown applications for others, this book is for you.
- Learn VBA syntax as easy-to-understand English
- Automate Excel's power tools: Pivot Tables, Charts, Advanced Filters
- Save hours per week by automating redundant tasks
- Create applications built on top of Excel with custom dialog boxes
- Automatically produce hundreds of Excel reports in seconds
- Understand how changes in Excel 2007 impact your VBA macros
About the Author
Bill Jelen, Excel MVP and MrExcel, has been using spreadsheets since 1985, and he launched the MrExcel.com website in 1998. Bill has made more than 50 guest appearances on Call for Help with Leo Laporte and has produced more than 250 episodes of his daily video podcast, Learn Excel from MrExcel. He is the host of Total Training’s Excel 2007 Advanced DVD. He also enjoys taking his show on the road, doing a one- to four-hour power Excel seminar anywhere that a room full of accountants or Excellers will show up. Before founding MrExcel.com, Jelen spent 12 years in the trenches–working as a financial analyst for finance, marketing, accounting, and operations departments of a $500 million public company. He lives near Akron, Ohio, with his wife, Mary Ellen, and sons, Josh and Zeke.
Tracy Syrstad remembers the painful trek up the VBA learning curve while developing applications for herself and co-workers at a former job. Now, as the project manager for the MrExcel consulting team, she enjoys helping clients develop custom solutions for their unique situations, observing the myriad ways people use Excel and other Microsoft Office applications.

I spent a while looking through books on VBA for Excel 2007 and I chose the Jelen/Syrstad title because is was not one of big fat programming guides. I feel there aren't enough examples provided in the book and the examples from their website are mostly a repeat of the book. I find working with Excel to develop a automatic report a daunting task; the built-in help is nearly worthless, the on-line help is a hit or miss, and that's after I've looked through the book.
I guess I'll be looking for a big fat programming guide with more chart development and, hopefully, one that covers Data Connections and SQL.
I have carefully read through the first 12 chapters before I started my project and I find the information easy to understand and straight forward. If, however, one tries to develop code outside of the examples provided, the frustration level increases.
