This VBA for Excel training course is designed to give a good working knowledge of Visual Basic for Applications – concentrating on Microsoft Excel.

VBA for Excel Training

Many advanced Excel users know how to use Macros to automate tasks by recording them using the Macro recorder, and running them at a later date.

However more advanced automation - particularly tasks that link spreadsheets and other office applications together - require VBA.

During this VBA for Excel Course students will learn to create and edit macros, and gain an understanding of VBA code.

The Visual Basic for Applications content of the training course can be applied to other Microsoft Applications.

We also provide private and in-company VBA for Excel courses. Call +44 (0)1273 622272 to discuss.

A good introduction to basics followed by the introduction of more complex functions. Very good coverage of a very complex subject.

Good working through the pre-coding stages, e.g drawing the problem out on paper and following it through logically.

Good pace, covering relevant content to us. Good mix of demonstrated examples & tasks to work through individually. Trainer always on hand to answer questions and very approachable

Filled in lots of holes in my knowledge. Particularly liked the usage of forms, learning the syntax for referring to controls within the form.
