5.0 étoiles sur 5The best reference out there!9 mars 2005
Par Robert G. - Publié sur Amazon.com
I work in a corporate environment and have found this book to be invaluable -- even in the short two week's I've owned it. Hardly a day goes by when I don't need to find a little VBA technique to help me create useful Excel apps for our team, and this book thus far has not let me down. It's accessible, targeted and concise. Highly recommended.

If there is one thing I know about trying to learn any computer program, it is that you have to get over the fear of the unknown and try it out to see how it works. This book gives you the exact keystrokes to use and pictures of what you should get step by step.
I've tried almost all of the routines and found very few errors. After going through this book you will be familiar with the syntax of VBA, how it is structured and see how it manipulates your spreadsheets in very practical ways that you can use today. You will find yourself keeping these small routines and copying them around in your larger more complex routines.
My only complaint is that sometimes it is hard to read the difference between a period and a comma. As you grow to learn VBA, this complaint lessens however. This is a minor complaint, and certainly not enough to recommend this book less.
I also own VBA Power Programming by Walkenbach, that book, will come ALIVE after you try all the procedures in THIS book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5beginners should have this book27 août 2006
Par C. Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book takes you from recording macros to knowing what the Visual Basic editor is, which is the foundation of writing your own macors. The book explores all the basics that you need to grasp along with providing all the steps visually. There are pictures on each page. It shows how to reference workbooks, sheets, ranges, colunms and row statements along with how to make decisions using If Then Else and how to use Loops. Additional topics are charts, pivot tables and user forms. Check out the table of contents for a more information on topics covered.
The reason I gave it only 4 stars instead of 5 is that nowhere in the title or elsewhere does it state its a beginner book. With a title VBA Programming I expected indepth coverage of programming with the excel objects. I was looking more for a intermediate or advanced book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5A welcome edition to my reference library.3 février 2007

I've always been a fan of the Master Visually series by Wiley Publishers. I have seen many technical books attempt to use a Visual Graphis style to make complex ideas simple and easy to understand. In this edition of "Excel 2003 VBA Programming" authored by Julia Kelly I wasn't disappointed. I give this book such a high rating because it does exactly what it promises in terms of functionality and understanding.
There's a bit of the cookbook style to the Layout. In the Table of Contents Macro's are grouped by subject from simple to more complex. Of course it doesn't end there. The same technique is used to explore the Visual Basic Editor, Manipulating Worksheets and Workbooks, Working with Ranges, Looping and Branching, Charts and Pivot Tables. In higher order references the book gets into controlling Macros with Events and Form based Programmed Controls. The book also provides an orderly approach to teaching VBA programming and debugging with VBA IDE Interface which I find highly lucid.
The book seems determined on achieving maximum functionality and usefulness to its programmer's audience.
Please note that the fact that this book is written for Microsoft Office 2003 doesn't take away from its value when say compared to a Microsoft Office 2007 environment. Because of the inherent underlying Document Object Model used in Office products most of the functionality still applies.
Overall I would say this book has pretty much everything a new or experienced VBA Macro programmer needs to get busy and productive in a hurry. By the way, one of the nicer things about this book is its use of the sidebar on many of its examples. These sidebars attempt to offer shortcuts and address users issues in Question and Answer format.
In Short this is a book I would pleased to have in my reference library.

This is a perfect book for both beginning and intermediate users of VBA. I have about 15 VBA books(I've been trying to teach myself)and this is one of the top three. Tons of examples that are very easy to understand and copy. Not really a great teaching book as it doesn't go into the building the language code, but the examples are great and a beginner will pick up a lot of tricks. My only criticism is that the book wasn't big enough. I would love to see another book by this author with more of the same.
