Hello and welcome to the Home and Learn course for Excel VBA. This is a free beginners programming course, and assumes that you have no experience with coding. In this course you'll learn how to create your own macros, so that you can bring your Excel skills to the next level, and put yourself ahead of the competition.
What is Excel VBA?
VBA stands for Visual Basic for Applications. It's a programming language that enables you to control just about everything in Excel. You'll learn how to create Macros that can be run from things like a button on a spreadsheet, the Excel Ribbon - in fact, lots of places. Learning Excel VBA will enable you to do a lot more with the software than you can via the normal spreadsheet view.
You don't need to be an Excel Guru to take this course, just average Excel skills will do. If you're new to Excel then this is not the place to start. We have a full and free Excel course here on our main site: Free Beginners Excel Course
What software do I need?
You need Excel 2007 or greater to do this course. You can probably follow along if you have a version of Excel earlier than this, but the screenshots are all from later versions.
Do I need any programming skills?
No. We take you through the very basics of programming, so don't worry if you have no skills at all in this area.
Where do I start?
Use the menus on the left of every page on this site. Each link takes you to a tutorial. There's plenty of screenshots to keep you on track, and exercises to complete to bring your skills along.
