Overview:

Do you find yourself repeatedly performing the same actions or tasks in your spreadsheets? If the answer is "Yes", it's time to learn how to create a macro.

VBA is the programming language that is built in to Excel (and the other applications in the MS Office Suite). VBA is used to automate tasks that would otherwise have to be performed manually by pressing keys and selecting items with the mouse -and if that sounds like a macro -well it is.

Although Excel has a macro recorder, there's a limit to what it can do. So, where the macro recorder's functionality ends, VBA takes over. At a more advanced level, VBA enables you to, amongst other things, build your own worksheet functions, create automated workflows and control and interact with other applications.

This webinar is aimed at advanced users of Excel, with little or no programming experience, who wish to "dip their toe into the VBA water".

Why should you Attend: VBA is one of the must have skills for Excel Power Users. VBA will save you, your colleagues and your customers hours of time by allowing you to automate any Excel-based task or process. If you've never used VBA before and you'd like to learn about the basics of VBA and automation, this webinar is for you.

  • Getting familiar with the VBA Editor
  • Understanding VBA jargon such as procedures, modules, methods and properties
  • How to edit an existing macro
  • How to write a simple macro from scratch using VBA

  • Create the pivot tables needed to drive the dashboard; create great looking visuals; add interactivity using slicers
  • Automate elements of the dashboard with a macro and protect the cells containing critical formulas

Who Will Benefit:
  • This webinar gets you started with VBA. It's aimed at advanced users of Excel, with little or no programming experience, who wish to take their level of automation knowledge beyond the macro recorder
  • The training will be delivered using the latest version of Excel for Windows although much of the functionality is available in earlier versions of the application
