The Best Second book on VBA


J

John

Hi Everyone,

I started learning VBA and I got for my first book, "Excel VBA Programming for
Dummies,
by John Walkenbach".
Very good book to start with, but his approach to teaching the Excel object
model is to provide examples of little macros and utilities. Unfortunately, if
the technique you need does not appear in any of these examples, you are out of
luck, because his explanations are neither extensive, detailed, nor thorough
enough to impart a good understanding of what is going on.
Now I'm ready for my second book.
Could you recommend a good book that provide a good explanation and
understanding
(Syntax) of most common command.

Best regards
John

Hi Eddie
You're right, this site is great but lacking in explanation and understanding
what's
going on.
A more advance book would help alot.

Hi Ron
Thank you for your reply.
I was thinking of ( Excel 2003 Power Programming with VBA ) by John Walkenbach
".
Do you know anything about this book (VBA and Macros for Microsoft Excel by
Bill Jilin & Tracy Siesta ) It's got good reviews but don't really know the
content.
I'm looking for more then Examples to understand.
BTW love your website.
Regards
John

Your best bet is to go to your local Borders or Barnes and Noble and look at
the content, style of delivery, etc. to see if it is compatible with your
style of learning. Here are a some more books you can look at when you are
at the book store...

http://www.amazon.com/Programming-E...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1252008075&sr=1-1

http://www.amazon.com/Professional-...=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1252008075&sr=1-6

http://www.amazon.com/Definitive-Gu...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1252008477&sr=1-1

http://www.amazon.com/Mastering-VBA...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1252008382&sr=1-1

Don't be thrown by the ".NET" part of the title on that first one... .NET
doesn't get covered until page 933. While not Excel specific, I threw the
last one in there just in case your Office programming might extend outside
of the Excel domain.
