To experience the type of automation I refer to, you can email FREE demos of sample automated Excel VB driven spreadsheet applications like Ƒ) a Training Tracking Database(TM), ƒ) a Fiveƕ) Year Income & Expense Monitor(TM) or Ɠ) an Export Packing List & Invoice Generator(TM) to yourself using the file mailer on my website.
I believe the foregoing are compelling justifications for choosing Excel Visual Basic over Visual Basic.
The assignment was not an accident. Before being redeployed to Benin brewery, I had been involved in "validating" the numerous complex formulas in the custom Lotus 1θι spreadsheet application during its development. The author _ Richard Chambers _ was at the time in charge(as Training Coordinator) of training new entrants, and upon discovering my keen interest in learning, often gave me his laptop to "proof" formulas, links etc. It was he who had told his counterpart in Benin brewery(Joe Sheehy) that I could help out with a problem they were having using the application. And I did resolve the problem _ resulting in my subsequently becoming responsible for the reports collation using the application.
So, (when considering the automation I speak about) do not think about spreadsheet documents containing one or two click_able buttons that allow a user print a page or copy some cells from one sheet to another. Instead, I want you to picture an application(or Entreprise Information System) that customises the appearance of your spreadsheet workspace(to take advantage of maximum screen capital available on your PC), and offers you custom "floating" data entry forms.
