Steven Roman's just-released book, Writing Excel Macros (O'Reilly, $27.95), offers a solid introduction to writing VBA macros and programs for Excel users and programmers unfamiliar with the Excel object model. To really harness the power of Excel, you need to move beyond the basics of creating spreadsheets and learn how to write effective VBA macros and programs.
Writing Excel Macros brings the power of Excel to the surface, exploring things you can do beyond the menus and dialog boxes.
"Personally, I hate long, wordy, overblown 1000+ page books half of which seem to be devoted to the author's 'humorous' anecdotes," says author Steven Roman. "So I wrote Writing Excel Macros in a terse, no-nonsense manner that is characteristic of all my books. I have tried to put my experience as a professor (about 20 years) and my experience writing books (about 30 of them) to work here to create a true learning tool for my readers."
