In Excel, you can automate tasks by using macros. A macro is a set of
instructions that tells Excel what to do. These commands are written in a
computer programming language called Visual Basic for Applications (VBA).
This document first explains how to create macros using the Macro
Recorder provided by Excel. Just as a tape recorder can be used to record
sounds which can be played back later, so the Macro Recorder can record
your actions into a macro. In this way you can create macros without
learning about Visual Basic.
Extend and enhance your Excel spreadsheets using the power of Macros and VBA programming
Get to grips with the VBA language to create professional spreadsheets.
Follow practical examples to common problems that you will find yourself using time and time again.
This book is for anyone who wants to do any application development in Excel. Even for an old hand at Excel development, a brief skim through reveals valuable nuggets of information.

Excel is a spreadsheet program in the Microsoft Office system. You can use Excel to create and format workbooks (a collection of spreadsheets) in order to analyze data and make more informed business decisions. Specifically, you can use Excel to track data, build models for analyzing data, write formulas to perform calculations on that data, pivot the data in numerous ways, and present data in a variety of professional looking charts.
I n 1989, Bill Jelen took a job in a finance department to maintain a
very expensive reporting tool. When he discovered on day one that
this new tool did not work, he began to learn how to use a $299
spreadsheet program in ways no sane person would ever think to use
it. To the manager who hired him, he now wants to admit that all the
reports that allegedly came out of the $50K 4th GL reporting tool from
1989 through 1994 really were actually produced with Lotus 1-2-3 and,
Thinking he was the smartest spreadsheet guy he knew, Jelen launched
MrExcel.com in 1998 and...

With Microsoft’s popular Excel 2007 spreadsheet program, you can enter, manipulate,
and analyze data in ways that would be impossible, cumbersome, or error
prone for you to do manually. This part gives you the basics you need to get up
and running quickly in Excel.
Welcome to your first look at Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)!
You might think that VBA is a secret code used by advanced computer users to intimidate the rest of us. Nothing could be further from the truth. VBA is all about doing things your way. When you want an application to perform a task in a certain way, use VBA to extend it. VBA makes you the boss. After you discover the wonders of VBA, you can customize a number of applications to make them work the way you want them to work.
INTENDED FOR CLASS USE OR SELF-STUDY, this text aspires to introduce statistical
methodology to a wide audience, simply and intuitively, through
resampling from the data at hand.
The resampling methods—permutations and the bootstrap—are easy to
learn and easy to apply. They require no mathematics beyond introductory
high-school algebra, yet are applicable in an exceptionally broad range of
Excel is a powerful program with more than 300 built-in functions that can be used to perform an almost infinite number of calculations. This friendly book shows you how to use the 150 most valuable ones in real-world situations: to compare the cost of buying vs. leasing a car, calculate classroom grades, or evaluate investment performance, for example. Another 85 specialized functions are also described. Detailed, step-by-step instructions help you understand how functions work within formulas and how you can use them to solve everyday problems....
Nothing is difficult once you have learned it. That applies to Excel as well, and once you have learned it, you
will be able to do things you never dreamed of! You will be able, to make calculations more complex than
NASA did when they sent the first man to the moon!
It may sound like big words, but in the case of Excel - or spreadsheet programs in general - it is quite
true. Spreadsheets can process large amounts of data and give you the calculation results in no time. And
when the calculations are made, you can have them presented as beautiful tables...
Tutorial: Learning to Program Amos with Visual Basic
You can use Amos 4.0 as a component in the computer programs you write. It is a relatively easy process because Amos lets you work in a general-purpose programming language instead of having to learn some special language. To use Amos 4.0 with your program, you need to program in a language or environment that can control automation servers, e.g., Microsoft Visual Basic, Microsoft C++, the SPSS scripting facility, SAS, DEC Visual FORTRAN or Borland Delphi1.
Microsoft Excel is a powerful and popular program for organizing and analyzing data. One
of its most powerful capabilities is PivotTables, which enable you to pull meaningful information
from huge masses of seemingly meaningless data. The name PivotTable comes from
one of the most powerful features of Excel—the ability to quickly and easily “pivot” the
data to view them in different ways.
You use Microsoft Excel to create
spreadsheets, which are
documents that enable you to
manipulate numbers and
formulas to quickly create
powerful mathematical, financial,
and statistical models. In this
chapter you learn about Excel
and you find out the kinds of
tasks you can perform with Excel.
You also learn how to start the
program, and you take a tour of
the program’s major features.
Microsoft Office 2007 is the latest-and-greatest version of a long line of versions, starting (not surprisingly) with Version 1. Not that this is
the 2,007th version. Somewhere along the way Microsoft switched from using sequential numbers for versions to using years.With Microsoft’s popular Excel 2007 spreadsheet program, you can enter, manipulate, and analyze data in ways that would be impossible, cumbersome, or error prone for you to do manually. This part gives you the basics you need to get up and......
When faced with a new software tool, most of us learn what we need to address our
immediate problem, and then armed with 10% of the tools that are available we attempt
to solve all future problems. In my discussions with colleagues, I have found that the
spreadsheet is the quintessence of this effect. Almost everybody has Microsoft® Excel
on their computer, yet few use it for anything but the most mundane tasks, rather like
a sophisticated, but unwieldy calculator.
What Is VBA?
You can automate almost anything you do in Excel. To do so, you write instructions that Excel carries out. Automating a task by using VBA offers several advantages: Excel always executes the task in exactly the same way. (In most cases, consistency is a good thing.) Excel performs the task much faster than you can do it manually (unless, of course, you’re Clark Kent). If you’re a good macro programmer, Excel always performs the task without errors (which probably can’t be said about you or me). If you set things up properly, someone who doesn’t know...

The purpose of this book is to give the reader a better understanding of how computers really work at a lower level than in programming languages like Pascal. By gaining a deeper understanding of how computers work, the
reader can often be much more productive developing software in higher level languages such as C and C++. Learning to program in assembly language is an excellent way to achieve this goal. Other PC assembly language books still teach how to program the 8086 processor that the original PC used in 1980! This book instead discusses how to program the 80386 and later...
