    Basic VBA (Excel 2000)

    I am a novice (i. e., don't know ANYTHING!) at VBA. Anyone know a good, free primer?
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Don't know if it's any good, but <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.vbatutor.com/vbatutor.htm>vbatutor</A> looks as good as anywhere to start.

    I have "Excel 2000 Power Programming with VBA" by John Walkenbach. It is straightforward and comprehensive and has helped me out of many a tight spot. Woody's lounge is also great for specific questions you can't answer anyplace else.

    Assuming you have an Excel focus ... for a freebie, Microsoft's own macro tutorial is a start: and <A target="_blank" HREF=http://office.microsoft.com/Assistance/2000/exrecordmacro2.aspx>modify your macro. In addition to the VBA tutor site mentioned, try and see <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.standard.net.au/~garyradley/VBATutor.htm>Radley's VBA Tutor.

    Not so free:
    I'm also a novice, I purchased Walkenbach's "Excel 97 Programming for Dummies" and Julitta Korol's "Learn Microsoft Excel 2000 VBA Programming". I have read 90% of the former and 25% of the latter (just the order I started them), and at this point I'd give a slight nod to the Korol book because of it's thoroughness and the way it leads you through a series of simple exercises to build comprehension and skills.
