Application code lessons and tool use

Kathleen Atkins

Good coaches are good teachers, as Lounge member JeanM must have discovered when she ran into trouble creating code for an Excel form.

Fortunately, she received helpful tips from some seasoned coders in the Spreadsheets forum. You can learn from them, too.
