Use various programming elements to solve problems through code, including variables,objects, conditional statements, and loops. Eliminate, avoid, or handle errors in VBA code, and optimize its performance.


VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) enables you to enhance and extend the capabilities of Microsoft Excel and other applications in the Microsoft 365 application suite. You can use VBA to perform tasks that would be difficult or impossible to do using only worksheet functions, and you can automate a wide range of tasks so they can be performed faster, more consistently, and with less effort than performing them manually. This course will give you a good foundation for understanding, creating, and using VBA in your own Excel workbooks. You will learn how to use the macro recorder effectively, as well as how to write your own VBA code from scratch. You will use tools built into Excel to explore and learn VBA's capabilities and to optimize and debug your code.
