Chapter 29. Introducing VBA Programming > Using the Visual Basic Editor

Using the Visual Basic Editor

The Visual Basic Editor (VBE) is the home for all editing operations with VBA in Office 97. The VBE is new to Office 97, replacing the various code editing features of the applications in previous versions of Office. The VBE puts a consistent and powerful editing and debugging platform in the hands of the Office developer. As a matter of fact, the VBE is virtually identical to the Visual Studio 97 editing environment that is used to create programs using Microsoft Visual Basic 5.0, as well as Visual C++ and Visual J++.

Starting the VBE

The VBE is easy to start from Excel. To start the VBE directly, choose Tools, Macro, Visual Basic Editor. The VBE opens in a separate program window. Figure 29.1 shows the VBE display.
