How is VBA Used in Microsoft Excel?

VBA is used in Microsoft Excel to automate it's environment and to create sophisticated tools that can be used in business, engineering and science.

Microsoft Excel Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) is one the most advanced versatile programming environments on the market today for developing advanced business, engineering and scientific tools. Below is a brief introduction to how VBA is used in Microsoft Excel.

How is VBA Used in Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) can be used in conjunction with Microsoft Excel to construct automated tools. Using VBA with Excel, powerful analysis tools can be developed quickly and with minimum cost. VBA can be used for important tasks like:

However, beyond just simple programs, Microsoft Excel and VBA can also be used to construct complex dashboard driven analysis, modeling and data processing tools that rival any program on the market today. We can say this because we develop complex integration systems for our customers using Excel and VBA after they have tried other various means and failed. These tools can go far beyond simple macros becoming actual programs. Excel has a vast array of automated features like drawing shapes, ActiveX controls, worksheets, userforms and cell ranges that when combined together with VBA allow these sophisticated dashboard driven programs to come alive. When you tie other programs and computer languages to Excel through VBA like Word, PowerPoint, Access, SQL Server, ASP, C Sharp, JavaScript and VB .Net, Excel VBA can tap into these environments obtaining the functionality it does not have.

The advanced Excel VBA interface pictured below is a scheduling tool for Microsoft Excel that keeps track of maintenance jobs and personnel. It uses Excel VBA, drawing shapes and worksheet cells to visualize a person's schedule. How to build this type of tool can be learned in our Advanced Excel VBA for Business workshop.
