Course length: 1 day
In the previous Excel courses, you used Excel to simplify business tasks, including the creation of spreadsheets, graphs, charts, and formulas that were difficult to create and nearly impossible to maintain using pencil and paper. You now want to simplify your work in the Excel environment by automating many of the repetitive tasks that are part of spreadsheet development. In Excel 2003: Introduction to VBA you apply the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming language to simplify many of the tasks you learned in Excel 2003: Level 1 and Excel 2003: Level 2.
You will use VBA to
create macros for automating repetitive tasks in Excel 2003.

In addition, students who already have knowledge of the basics of Excel, including how to create, edit, format, and print worksheets that include charts and sorted and filtered data.
Prerequisites: To ensure your success, we recommend you first take the Excel 2003: Level 2 course or have equivalent knowledge.
