Putting the MS Excel VBA to optimal use

Visual BASIC for Applications (VBA) is the programming language built into MS Excel and other MS programs. It is a macro, which, as we know, is a recording of a series of tasks. At a simple level, it can be thought of as a smaller version of programing in that once certain tasks are assigned to it, it carries them out.

The main function of a macro is to work within a program such as MS Excel and automate tasks that need to be performed over and over many times. Because of this function, MS Excel carries out many tasks that would otherwise have to be done manually. Obviously, this is a great time saver, because the time that needed to be spent on manually carrying out a host of repetitive tasks can now be put on something constructive.

 

Overcoming the limitations

MS Excel has a macro recorder, but it has its limitations. So, VBA takes over where the macro recorder’s functionality ends. At a more advanced level, VBA enables the user to carry out many functions, such as:

  • Building your own worksheet functions
  • Creating automated workflows
  • Controlling and interacting with other applications, plus much more.
