Learn VBA - New workshop!

Learn VBA - New workshop!

VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) is a computer language that lets ordinary users automate Office applications. You can record macros, perform a repetitive action, automate a workflow, or even build an entirely new application using VBA.

This workshop is for people who have little to no experience with programming computers, but have some familiarity an Office application. We’re not going to make you a computer programming expert. This is an introductory level workshop. We think you will be able to use VBA to accomplish simple, useful actions after attending this workshop. Some attendees will quickly advance to a higher skill level on their own.


If you use any of these Office applications, you are a good candidate for learning VBA. You can use your VBA skills with all of these programs:
    Microsoft Word
    Microsoft Excel
    Microsoft PowerPoint
    Microsoft Outlook (Windows only)
    Microsoft Project
    Microsoft Access
    OpenOffice Calc
    LibreOffice Calc

After attending this workshop, you will know
    Enough about code to get started
    How to open and use the Visual Basic Editor
    How to control application and document properties
    How to write and run your first “Hello World” program
    How to make and run macros
    How to record macros
    How to make your own new worksheet functions in Excel and Calc

You must bring your own laptop having one or more of the Office applications listed above to this workshop. The classroom is 310 Silverman Library in Capen Hall on UB's north campus. This room does not have workstations.
