Gives programmers, software developers, and advanced users of Microsoft Office applications, all the key concepts necessary to write VBA programs for the new Office "X" Fully updated to cover all the changes in the newest release of Office, VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) is the primary development tool for all applications in the Microsoft Office suite - Access, Excel, and Word - and according to Microsoft, more than 2.6 million programmers currently use VBA. Since VBA is also licensed to other software developers and vendors, it is built into some non-Microsoft, third-party software; programs that include VBA can be tailored to fit specific business needs. Shows programmers how to build applications with VBA, and covers all the essentials, including VBA visual programming tools, recording and modifying macros, basic VBA programming, running VBA programs, using the VBA Editor, debugging and error trapping, plus more advanced topics, such as built-in VBA commands and working with objects. The author has written and/or cowritten more than fifty-eight technology books.
