VBA Course

Here we provide, for those interested in learning or improving their VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) programming, on an “AS IS” basis with no warranties or rights, a course we developed in 2003, but which remains largely valid (since Microsoft has made few changes to VBA since then).InQA Two day VBA Course parts 1 to 5 (zip file, 2MB).

InQA Two day VBA Course parts 6 to 10 (zip file, 1MB).

Note: we write our production code mainly in C# and other Microsoft .NET languages, but we still use VBA for some purposes including for some aspects of testing and for developing quick prototypes.
