Excel VBA - what can it do?
Excel VBA stands for Visual Basic for Applications. It is a programming language which is used to develop programs within Excel.
It can turn complex or time-consuming tasks into automated processes, saving time and improving the quality of reporting.
Some of the benefits of using Excel VBA include:
- Saving time on repetitive tasks by carrying them out in exactly the same way, consistently.
- Once set up, VBA allows tasks to be performed by an Excel novice through the click of a button (on the toolbar or in a worksheet).
- Doing things that are otherwise impossible in Excel like creating a new function or controlling the scroll area.
- It can be used to create an entry form or user interface.
A sales person could have a button to print out a weekly report for the current week just before attending a meeting.
A data analyst could download data and run a macro to format, delete and rearrange the data before outputting to a pivot table. All with one macro!
