OVERVIEW

Do you find yourself repeatedly performing the same actions or tasks in your spreadsheets? If the answer is "Yes", it’s time to learn how to create a macro in Excel.

VBA is the programming language that is built in to Excel (and the other applications in the MS Office Suite). VBA is used to automate tasks that would otherwise have to be performed manually by pressing keys and selecting items with the mouse - and if that sounds like a macro - well it is.

Although Excel has a macro recorder, there's a limit to what it can do. So, where the macro recorder's functionality ends, VBA takes over. At a more advanced level, VBA enables you to, amongst other things, build your own worksheet functions, create automated workflows and control and interact with other applications.

This webinar is aimed at advanced users of Excel, with little or no programming experience, who wish to "dip their toe into the VBA water"

VBA is one of the must have skills for Excel Power Users. VBA will save you, your colleagues and your customers hours of time by allowing you to automate any Excel-based task or process. If you've never used VBA before and you'd like to learn about the basics of VBA and automation, this webinar is for you.
