In the course VBA Excel Programming you will learn how VBA, Visual Basic for Applications, can be used to write macros in Excel with VBA and to program in Excel. Excel is a spreadsheet application that is part of the Microsoft Office package. Excel consists of many related objects that can be accessed with VBA.
The course starts with recording macros in Excel and then viewing and adjusting the VBA code behind these macros. In particular the parts of VBA Excel that are important for controlling Excel are treated.
Next attention is paid to the syntax of the VBA language in which statements, variables and control flow constructs are discussed.
An important part of the course concerns the use of functions in Excel. The course covers how you can write functions yourself that you can then call from VBA code.
The so-called VBA Excel Object model and its properties and functions with which Excel can be controlled are also on the program of the course.
Furthermore attention is paid to how databases can be accessed from Excel with the DAO, Data Access Objects, object model.
Finally events and their handling are covered. Events are generated by user interaction such as pressing buttons or entering commands via the keyboard. These events are important for controlling Excel. After completing this course, the participants are able to automate many tasks in Excel and process large amounts of data.
This course is for individuals who want to learn how to write macros in Excel for automating operations and data processing.
In order to participate in this course good knowledge of and practical experience with Excel is required.
The theory is discussed on the basis of presentation slides. Illustrative demos give further clarification of the concepts. The theory is interspersed with practical exercises. Course times are from 9:30 up and to 16:30.

Reacting on events
All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
