This is a good, clearly-written intro to VBA -- but it really only covers VBA in Excel. If you're looking for insights on VBA for Word (which is what's even more important to me), this book doesn't do it. You learn your way around the VBA interface and learn some basic app construction steps that will probably *always* be useful -- but that's it. That said, this book feels dated. I think the 2011 publication date really refers to the electronic version of the book. The title page itself, even in the eBook, says 2004. Moreover, all the screen shots have a Windows XP interface -- which is now 6 years out of date. So, bottom line is this: it's a nice intro (and I really did learn a few things), but it feels dated and I found myself wondering what might have changed since this was written that I was not learning about. There's probably a *huge* amount that's changed -- but, in all fairness, most of what has been added or tweaked is outside the scope of an intro discussion anyway. If you're looking for a book that will provide help doing complex VBA programming or that will give you deep insight into a VBA command lexicon, this does not do that. But, it's a good intro.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
