VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) enables you to enhance and extend the capabilities of Microsoft Excel and other applications in the Microsoft 365 application suite. You can use VBA to perform tasks that would be difficult or impossible to do using only worksheet functions, and you can automate a wide range of tasks involving the collection, processing, analysis, and visualization of data. This course will give you a good foundation for understanding, creating, and using VBA in your own Excel workbooks, show you how to work with data across different applications, and how to package the macros and functions you create so you can back them up, move them to other computers, and share them with other users.
In this course, you will develop and deploy VBA modules to solve business problems. You will:
Identify general components of VBA and their appropriate use in solving business solutions.
Record VBA macros to automate repetitive tasks.
Use reference tools built into Excel to get help on VBA programming language and objects used in the Excel VBA environment.
Write VBA code to create a custom worksheet function.
Eliminate, avoid, or handle errors in VBA code, and optimize its performance.
Control how and when macros run.
Develop UserForm objects to create custom dialog boxes and windows.
Use VBA to read and write data from local files and cloud services.
Use VBA to clean and transform data.
Run programs and commands outside of Excel and share VBA projects with other users.
