Greetings,

I am looking for the most in depth and advanced VBA text book on the market. Could you recommend any titles?

I am using Excel 2003. I am an experienced C++ programmer, so I do not want a beginner's text. I want EVERYTHING about VBA for Excel in one text.

Looking forward to your recommendations.

Thanks and regards,
Henning

Howdy & Welcome to the Board!

Since VBA is not Excel-specific, your requirement for the most advanced VBA book does not really tally with "Everything about VBA for Excel in one text". However, the best and most in-depth VBA book you will find is this one:

VBA Developer's Handbook

For Excel specific, then consider:

Professional Excel Development

and maybe:

Excel 2007 VBA Programmer's Reference

EDIT: Since you are using Excel 2003 the last book may not be entirely appropriate - there are other editions for the other versions of Excel but DON'T go for the 2003 edition (it was mauled to death by a new author and was utter sh*t). Go for the 2002 edition which was written by the same people as the 2007 one (and is very good).

Thanks for all who contributed. I have decided to buy VBA Developer's Handbook. I think that is the type of book that I was looking for. (Richard, thanks for your posting - it really pointed me in the right direction.)

I personally have found the VBA helpfile in Excel 2003 very dissapointing.

Thanks and regards,
Henning

I personally find it to be pretty helpful when used in conjuction with the Object Browser. :cool:

But, perhaps the book will be of help. Good hunting. :)
