    online courses in vba and excel macros

    Hi, I am new to VBA and Macros. I am an intermediate and comfortable Excel user but when it comes to Macro I am at a loss.

    I am looking to find some good training course and I can't figure out which course to go for. Is there any online Excel training course in VBA and Macros that you would recommend above all others?

    Thank you
    Regards,
    Sal

    Sal,

    If this is inappropriate, I'm sure it will be removed. but you need to know that uDemy and a lot of their competitors are said to be very poor teaching academies and a waste of money, by many students and beginners who have taken their courses. I've talked to MANY of them in the world and a lot of them say the same thing. Now, that's not ALL of them but many, yes. and the reason obviously is because literally EVERYONE in the world has caught on to the fact that there is serious money to be made in taking advantage of young kinds and/or people who realize that automation will take over a lot of the world, and the best chance they have at surviving is to learn how to write code. and therefore, everyone in the world has created teaching academies because they know that students will pay them without even thinking about it. and these schools are massively profiting. and of course, whenever a huge trend starts, this always happens. the same thing is going with cloud computing and data centers. and the reason for of course, is because everyone in the world in bored to tears and they're clicking buttons on their phones all day long. thus, the revenue generation from advertising and data collection/profiling/sharing will be HUGE. every button click is recorded, and a lot more. as a matter of fact, the best tracking software that is currently out there belongs to a startup in Atlanta, GA. here it is:

    and of course, that software is being used for good, and also for evil. FYI for you.

    Someone came to me and asked me to teach them about web programming and I put together a package for him, in a common sense manner. If you want to view it (10 lessons for HTML, 10 for CSS and 10 for Javascript), the package is on google's cloud drive under my name. He has praised me for it time and time again, and I simply helped him out free of charge. If you want to view it, the package is here:

    I am also teaching a person in Slovenia how to write the VBA language. this is also available for free on the same cloud. If you want to view those 2 packages (23 short lessons in all), you can do so at these addresses:

    I would suggest you start here: https://www.excelforum.com/excel-pro...materials.html

    Latest list: https://www.excelforum.com/excel-pro...ml#post4835396

    But note there are several updates throughout plus many additions.
