Excel/VBA/Python - sharing variables/application.caller offset/read textbox


New Member

I've been working with VBA and Python recently but I've never combined the two. I'm just trying to get my head around how the 2 communicate with each other.

Is it possible to set a variable in VBA and then Python can read the value of the VBA variable?

For example, if the VBA variable was from application.caller and offset by some number of columns, can Python read the value of this VBA variable?

Separate to this, I've not been able to find much online but is it possible to have Python read the value of the TextBox in Excel?

The only way I know how to achieve this is to have my button take the offset value as normal, but have it insert it into a random cell somewhere and have Python look at this cell for the value.

Would love some clarification - thanks!
