Looking into the Excel Script Editor (Shift+Alt+F11) and realized I haven't seen much reference to it on the board. Anyone have any examples of what types of problems might be solved with this tool rather than VBA.

Looks pretty powerful, and maybe it's a little unnecessary for most problems, but thought some examples might be a nice addition to the board. (Maybe not full blown steps by step examples, but suggestions for problems that have been solved with this rather than VBA\Functions\Etc)

One example it did notice was changing external data filename references, seemed to avoid some undesireable behavior excel exhibits when modifying this reference directly.

I've never done any HTML or XML scripting with excel... but you got me curious.

Open help in the script editor and the first 2 categories give a good general explanation.

For an example, just open the script editor... and it will show you script for the active sheet.
