The global body for professional accountants


An ACCA Professional Courses event

You could make Excel work harder, particularly repetitive reporting tasks. This course introduces Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) – the language used to write macros.   Through the use of hands-on examples the course will illustrate the process of creating bespoke reports from large quantities of data (no previous programming experience required).

Key Features 

• Review and understanding of the VBA development environment
• Understanding objects, methods and properties
• Writing procedures and functions to control Excel
• Designing and using user forms and working with message and input boxes
• How to avoid bugs, debugging and error handling

What Will I Get Out of It?

• Better understanding of when to and when not to use VBA
• Obtain a solid foundation to explore your own automation tasks
• Hands on practice with help to write processes that will speed up your work tasks enormously
