Excel VBA 101 – Take Automation Beyond the Macro Recorder

Although Excel has a Macro Recorder for automating tasks and processes, there’s a limit to what the Macro Recorder can do. So where the Macro Recorder’s functionality ends, VBA takes over.

In this session you will learn how to create and edit macros using VBA rather than Excel’s Macro Recorder. This webinar gets you started with VBA. It’s aimed at advanced users of Excel, with little or no programming experience, who wish to take their level of automation knowledge beyond the Macro Recorder

Using the knowledge gained 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 macros and VBA before and you’d like to learn about the basics of macros, VBA and automation, this webinar is for you.

Areas Covered in the Session :

  • Writing a simple macro from scratch using VBA
  • Using the IF statement to apply logic to your VBA procedures
  • Using Loops to save time and create efficient code
  • Variables – what are they and how are they used?
Who Should Attend:

This webinar gets you started with VBA. It’s aimed at advanced users of Excel who have already dipped their toe into the VBA water, probably to make simple edits to macros created with the Macro Recorder.

This training is relevant to all industries. It is not industry specific.

Although the training will be delivered using Excel 2016 for Windows, it is just as relevant to users of earlier versions of Excel (2013, 2010 and 2007)
