  2. Microsoft Excel Macro – VBA Programming


VBA stands for Visual Basic for Applications. It’s a programming language that enables you to control just about everything in Excel. You’ll learn how to create Macros that can be run from things like a button on a spreadsheet, the Excel Ribbon – in fact, lots of places. Learning Excel VBA will enable you to do a lot more with the software than you can via the normal spreadsheet view.

Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) is the programming interface for Excel. It allows you to automate tasks and even control other applications such as PowerPoint and Access.

At the end of this course, you will be able to automate your job tasks in Microsoft Excel.
