Learning by Example
I believe that learning programming concepts is accelerated by a heavy emphasis on examples.
And based on the feedback that I’ve received from readers of previous editions of this topic, I
have plenty of company. VBA programmers especially benefit from a hands-on approach. A
wellthought-out example usually communicates a concept much better than a description of the
underlying theory. I decided, therefore, not to write a reference book that painstakingly describes
every nuance of VBA. Rather, I prepared numerous examples to demonstrate useful Excel
programming techniques.
The previous chapters in this part provide enough information to get you started. The Help
system provides all the details that I left out. In this chapter, I pick up the pace and present examples
that solve practical problems while furthering your knowledge of VBA.
I’ve categorized this chapter’s examples into six groups:
h Working with ranges
h Working with workbooks and sheets
h VBA techniques
