Preface > Organization of This Book

Organization of This Book

Writing Excel Macros consists of 21 chapters that can informally be divided into four parts (excluding the introductory chapter). In addition, there are five appendixes.

Chapter 1 examines why you might want to learn programming and provides a few examples of the kinds of problems that can best be solved through programming. Chapter 2 introduces programming and the Visual Basic for Applications language.

Chapter 2 through Chapter 4 form the first part of the book. Chapter 3 and Chapter 4 examine the Visual Basic Integrated Development Environment (IDE), which is the programming environment used to develop Excel VBA applications.

The second part of the book consists of Chapter 5 through Chapter 8, which form an introduction to the VBA language, the language component that is common to Microsoft Visual Basic and to many of Microsoft’s major applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access, as well as to software from some other publishers. Individual chapters survey VBA’s variables, data types, and constants (Chapter 5), functions and subroutines (Chapter 6), intrinsic functions and statements (Chapter 7), and control statements (Chapter 8).
