Editorial Reviews

This book is definitive. Though assuming no knowledge of VBA or Visual Basic, it covers every aspect of Excel programming. The emphasis is always on solving problems that professionals will encounter in their daily work. Whether it is automatically displaying different views of data through pivot tables or accessing databases through ADO, the latest Microsoft database technology, it's all here. The final chapter provides a reference on Excel objects that is equally definitive. It is important to note that this book is not an advertising brochure for Excel. If there are problems with the Excel object library (and unfortunately there are many of them), they are explained. Whenever possible, Kofler explains a work-around. Still, this book gives the reader a comprehensive look at what you can do with Excel - and despite some problems, the range of possible applications is huge.
