    For VBA: Excel 2002 or 2003? (Excel 2002)

    Sorry, this might be to broad or vague for this forum but... I want to seriously learn VBA for use in automating things in my spreadsheet models. (As I'm not a software developer, I don't think I'll be needing stuff like .NET etc; and probably won't upgrade to Excel 2007 anytime soon.) My question is: does Excel 2003 have any meaningful advantages over Excel 2002? Before I take the plunge I'd like to do so from the best platform. Any advice gratefully received.

    Didn't you mean 97, 2000, 2002 and 2003 are the same? 2007 is different but there are/will be converters available I believe.

    Edited by HansV to correct typo in versions - thanks, Rory!

    There are a few new features in Excel 2003, such as a database-like List, but all in all, the differences aren't large. I use XL 2002 at home and 2003 at work, and hardly notice the difference.
    The file format of XL 97, 2000, 2002 and 2003 is the same.
