I have only read part of the book and alreadly my (rather basic) coding abilities have improved tenfold. Information is presented clearly and the examples are instrucive and useful. The companion website with longer examples is a great resource as well. I recommend this book to anyone wanting to move beyond the basics.

OMG ! I have used several excellently reviewed books regarding Excel (and other Office applications) that significantly advanced my knowledge. John Walkenbach exceeds all previous resources. Admittedly, that doesn't mean this is the book for you. For a VBA resource I don't know if there is any other that will surpass this volume. The downside of this is that one could be overwhelmed by all the information here. It may be best for the user to begin with Bill Jelen's book to began wading into the topic, but if one can jump in without being overwhelmed or one wishes to buy only one book, THIS IS IT!
