    The one I started with was Woody Leonhard's book 'Word 97 Annoyances' which is still very relevant. It is not an indepth programming book and talks about a whole lot more than creating VBA programs but it does lead you very gently into the world of creating and editing macros.

    I don't know of any others but once you have the basics then just looking back through the history in this forum you will progress your knowledge in leaps and bounds.

    One of the difficulties in answering the question is that Office 2003 includes a lot of Visual Studio.Net functionality, at least in Word and Excel. VBA can still be used for unmanaged code in those applications, but VBA differs radically between application implementations, so a generic tutorial doesn't really exist.

    I started out years ago with "Word 97 Macro & VBA Handbook" by Guy Hart-Davis, subtitled "The complete and practical guide to automating Word 97". It comes with a CD containing sample code and video walk-throughs. I learned a lot from them. I'm not sure, but I think that there's an update for later versions of Word.
