Using Microsoft Excel 2013 VBA scripting features, you can save dozens - or even hundreds - of hours per year. But most Excel users have never written a VBA script: many haven't even used Excel's built-in Macro Recorder. Excel 2013 VBA and Macrosis the solution. One simple step at a time, two leading Excel VBA scripting experts teach all the techniques you need to automate virtually any Excel task and customize virtually any Excel report or business solution. Bill Jelen ("MrExcel") and top Excel VBA consultant Tracy Syrstad begin with the absolute basics, including ranges, user-defined functions, looping, flow control, R1C1-style formulas, and efficient, modern object programming. You'll learn how to automate Excel 2013's most powerful new features for data analysis, formatting, visualization, sharing, and presentation. Jelen and Syrstad cover all this, and more: * Creating charts, PivotTables, and other data visualizations * Mining data with Excel's Advanced Filter * Reading from and writing to the Web * Using XML from within Excel * Using Microsoft Access as a back end to enhance multi-user access to data * Handling errors * Customizing the Excel 2013 Ribbon to run macros * Writing Excel 2013 code that works with older versions of Excel This book is part of the popular MrExcel's Library series, edited by Bill Jelen, world-renowned Excel expert and host of leading Excel help site, MrExcel.com.

Author Biography

Bill Jelen , Excel MVP and the host of MrExcel.com, has been using spreadsheets since 1985, and he launched the MrExcel.com website in 1998. Bill was a regular guest on Call for Help with Leo Laporte and has produced more than 1,500 episodes of his daily video podcast, Learn Excel from MrExcel. He is the author of 39 books about Microsoft Excel and writes the monthly Excel column for Strategic Finance magazine. His Excel tips appear regularly in CFO Excel Pro Newsletter and CFO Magazine . Before founding MrExcel.com, Bill Jelen spent 12 years in the trenches–working as a financial analyst for finance, marketing, accounting, and operations departments of a $500 million public company. He lives near Akron, Ohio, with his wife, Mary Ellen.


Tracy Syrstad is the project manager for the MrExcel consulting team. She was introduced to Excel VBA by a co-worker who encouraged her to learn VBA by recording steps, and then modifying the code as needed. Her first macro was a simple lookup and highlight for a part index, although it hardly seemed simple when she did it. She was encouraged by her success with that macro and others that followed. She’ll never forget the day when it all clicked. She hopes this book will bring that click to its readers sooner and with less frustration. She lives near Sioux Falls, South Dakota, with her husband, John.
