7) Question of the Month about Software Training:
Each month Jeff Love will answer a current or important question that we have received about computer and software training.
March 2006 Question of the Month:
Could you please list some good tutorial and article resources for learning Microsoft Office Automation and VBA scripting?
The Microsoft Office products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook) provide servers that you can use to manipulate Office documents from Visual Basic or Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code. For example, you could write a Visual Basic program that opens Excel, initializes a series of cells, and uses the cells to display a chart. For another example, you could write a VBA macro in PowerPoint that opens a Word document and copies its headings into PowerPoint slides.
Here are the best learning resources I have found for learning Office Automation technologies:
This is a search on msdn.microsoft.com for "Office Automation" containing results that links to many good tutorials and articles covering this technology.
