    Visual Basic seems to be the answer to all of my problems. I have a little bit of programming experience and would like to buy a book on VBA so I can use it to automate and customize my excel spreadsheets. Can anyone recommend a good book? Thanks in advance for your replies!

    Hi,

    Any of the John Walkenbach books should be a good start. When you get more advanced, you can start on the John Green/Stephen Bullen VBA texts.

    For a more complete list of books available, try: http://www.contextures.on.ca/tiptech.html

    If you want online tutorials, try one of these:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...mmersguide.asp

    http://www.microsoft.com/exceldev/e-a&sa.htm#vba

    Also, don't forget the Newsgroups!!!! You will learn a ton here at Mr. Excel and others.

    For websites, the first places to go are John W's, David McRitchie's and Chip Pearson's:

    http://www.mvps.org/dmcritchie/excel/excel.htm
    http://www.cpearson.com

    I would also recommend browsing through the MrExcel site!

    HTH,
    Jay

    Hi,

    I forgot one. One of the most frequent posters to Mr. Excel is Dave Hawley. His site is very nice, too.
