Taking Microsoft® Excel® Further: Macros for Data Management and Statistics
The ease with which Microsoft® Excel® can be extended is a welcome and useful surprise for those who wish or need to use Excel for statistical work.
This one-day course introduces participants to ways of extending Excel using macros and other features of Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). Examples include simple programs to reorganise data and to perform statistical calculations. Practical sessions enable participants to develop and run simple macros.
Those who need to extend their use of Excel beyond the standard facilities. The examples are mainly for those who will use Excel for statistical applications, but the concepts are equally relevant for any area of application. Participants will be assumed to have some experience in Excel. Programming experience in any language would be useful, but is not assumed.
You will be able to use Excel more efficiently, even for non-standard problems. Where applications need to be written that require more professional programming skills, you will be able to understand the issues involved, so that you can discuss the requirements and time-scales more effectively.
- The role for simple macros to eliminate repetition in Excel
- Moving on from macros to programming in VBA
- Programming tips
- Creating a simple Add-In with your macros.
