VBA gives you complete control of Excel, allowing you to do anything from automating Excel tasks to developing full applications, using Excel as the development environment. Excel 2002 is an important upgrade to the Office suite spreadsheet program. It shows Microsoft's commitment to moving Office to be a web-enabled productivity tool, a rich client for working with web-based data, with new features such as SmartTags and XML support.
