    good vba book

    hi all,

    can anyone recommend a good vba/vb book for a beginner. Dispite my programming experience (zip, nada, bupkus..maybe lack of it I guess), I'm fairly good at picking up stuff so maybe a hard beginner book (If there is such a thing).

    tks,
    eddie

    To get good at this, you are going to need lots of resources. Since you mentioned beginner, I'll recommend VBA Developer's Handbook by Getz and Gilbert; Word 97 Macro & VBA Handbook, Hart-Davis and Mastering Access 97 Development by Alison Balter. These are older works, but very good.

    I can assure you that the following books are really very good :
    1) Excel 2000 Power Programming with VBA from John Walkenbach (IDG Books) (can be ordered at e.g. amazon.com)(beginner/intermediate)
    2) Excel 2000 VBA Programmer's Reference from John Green (Wrox) (can be ordered at e.g. amazon.com) (intermediate)

    I recommend that you go to www.microsystems.com/books_vba.htm
    They have a great list of books for whatever your use is. They focus on Word, but have many books that are for other VBA uses.
    However, my personal preferance is for Word 2000 VBA, Duncan Mackenzie (Wrox press).
