Working with Excel and VBA|
Many of us know Excel for its spreadsheets: a quick and easy way to store some information, share it, and maybe make some charts. The goal of this course is to show you the more advanced features of Excel. We will write code in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), learn how to import data from external databases and Web-based resources, create custom menus to interact with a user, and examine how Excel can be used in business decision making.
