About the Author

Bill Jelen, Excel MVP and the host of MrExcel.com, has been using spreadsheets since 1985, and he launched the MrExcel.com website in 1998. Bill was a regular guest on Call for Help with Leo Laporte and has produced more than 1,200 episodes of his daily video podcast, Learn Excel from MrExcel. He is the author of 30 books about Microsoft Excel and writes the monthly Excel column for Strategic Financemagazine. You will most frequently find Bill taking his show on the road, doing half-day Power Excel seminars wherever he can find a room full of accountants or Excellers. Before founding MrExcel.com, Jelen spent 12 years in the trenches—working as a financial analyst for finance, marketing, accounting, and operations departments of a $500 million public company. He lives near Akron, Ohio, with his wife, Mary Ellen, and his sons, Josh and Zeke.


Tracy Syrstadis the project manager for the MrExcel consulting team. She was introduced to Excel VBA by a co-worker who encouraged her to learn VBA by recording steps and then modifying the code as needed. Her first macro was a simple lookup and highlight for a parts index, although it hardly seemed simple then. But she was encouraged by this success and others to follow. She’ll never forget the day when it all clicked. She hopes this book will bring that click to its readers sooner and with less frustration. She lives near Sioux Falls, South Dakota, with her husband, John.

This book is so convoluted that I couldn't get through the projects. I'm not a novice to programming. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone at any level.

I buy quite a few books on software training. This book rates in the 2-star area and that might be a generous rating. It's frustrating that the authors, who have genuine God-like credentials, can't understand that the novice programmer needs to be provided with thorough, meticulous context. I would give up on one context-deficient section only to go on to the next section that was no better. Someone needs to tell these people you have to sit down with a novice programmer once in a while to review the thoroughness of your step-by-step instructions. Outside of its semi-adequate section to explain the A1 vs R1C1 cell referencing dilemma, I'm not sure what else I learned from this book. In the meantime, I found the 2010 Excel VBA programming book from John Walkenbach to be comparatively supreme at about 1/3 of the way into the book. I got a chance to look at some of the Walkenbach book in Barnes&Noble before purchasing. For another $10(Nook version)--wow!--it's a hundred dollar improvement in the quality of VBA instruction at least at my beginner-level disposition. Of note, a 2013 Excel VBA version of the Walkenbach book is now available and I'm hoping the quality will be as good as the 2010 version.
