I've done a lot of messing around over the years with Excel and Access, formulas, forms, queries --- you may say intermidiate developer in some ways,l beginner in others ---- clueless about writing code, desperate to find something clear to get started with it, because my Access development now needs VBA and SQL. MANY computer preofessionals are not great communicators, so many books by such people just fail to get through to me. Richard Mansfield BEGINS AT THE BEGINNING, CLEARLY EXPLAINGING THE TERMINOLOGY ---- instead of, as many authors do, just starting to to throw around the lingo, so that the beginner can only throw up his/her hands and say 'what the heck does that word mean exactly? Whis is a 'macro', and how is it different from a 'subroutine', a 'procedure'?
I suspect this book is goodt for a wide rage of audiences, For. Review of Jeff Hutchinson’s training manual titled: Visual Basic for Excel: Supports Excel 2010, 2013, and 2016 (Excel 2016-5) Volume 5 After reading through the more than 200 exercises, it is apparent that Mr.

Hutchinson, (the author of the training manual), is truly an expert in the application of Visual Basic in its use with Excel. The author’s use of macros in establishing “code” gives the student who is attempting to master VBA an ability to overcome the mistakes in code that can occur when writing code “from scratch.” Mr. Hutchinson gives the reader a step-by-step introduction in writing macros and then progresses onwards to explaining, with numerous examples, the inner workings of VBA. This manual is truly not to be without, especially for the beginning student of Visual Basic. Then after learning the basics of VBA, the manual becomes an excellent reference tool because of its excellent index. I recommend it without.
Bought a copy for myself, and then four for the other members of my department for Christmas. Yes, it's a great reference, BUT it also has a lot of little notes on the lesser known problems with some functions and techniques.
Some small errata in some specific areas (I believe he covers these on the O'Reilly web site, though). First book I've found which discusses VB/VBA as a language, and never lets himself get distracted with forms and controls. Great for experienced programmers coming from other languages who can't get the sometimes obscure VB semantics under control. Went looking for a publication providing practical and easy to follow instruction on the use of VBA. Having already attempted to use an 'O'Reilly' VB & VBA text, only to find that its excellence was clouded by its complexity - it assumed you already knew the basics and did not offer screen based examples of what it was portraying, I was after something friendlier. This publication fits the bill for the informed but not expert user of Microsoft Office 2007/2010 who want's to take the next step and automate business processes or routines. It is well written and easy to follow and the author clearly knows his stuff.
(although it's possibly not edited as well as it should have been - an early 'typo' gave the wrong instruction as to which short cut key to use to run a macro being developed in the tuition exercise - wasn't hard to realise but. This is the only Visual Basic book I have seen which allows users to program in VB without first learning the intricacies of the language. Which makes this book the only convenient source (that I have found; after repeated trips to book stores and libraries) for anyone who is attempting to make useful programs in Excel. While it was written for Excel 7.0 the applications (amazingly) still work in Excel 2000.
