What is VBA?
VBA stands for Visual Basic for Applications. It’s a programing language used by excel to record a macro.
What is Macro and its advantages?
Macro is a Microsoft tool that records user action and stores it within the Excel environment.
Macros are mostly used to eliminate repetitive task.
Let’s say you receive around 10 worksheets on a daily base from different verticals.
You have to consolidate all these worksheets into one master sheet with proper formatting.
Doing this manually that too on daily base could be time consuming and boring.
Here’s where we can use a macro to record the steps needed to perform the task.
The next time you just need to run the recorded macro to get this task done automatically.
Do I need to know VBA Programing language to create a Macro?
No, you don’t need to know VBA language to create a macro. Excel macro recorder writes the code for you.
It’s a boon for the people who don’t want to write a single line of code and still want to create a macro that could solve their purpose.
Is there any limitation to the macro recorder?
Yes, there is a certain limitation to a macro recorder.
Macro Recorder cannot make any changes to already recorded macro. Though it may be a very simple change.
Macro Recorder cannot record a macro based on conditions. Even there will be a time where a macro recorder will not be able to record some steps.
I guarantee you that a moment will come where you may feel a need for manual code interruption and if you don’t have a better understanding of VBA code you will be stuck.
You will be forced to look for someone who can do the same for you.
Do we need to have a programming background to learn VBA?
No, you don’t need to have any programming knowledge to learn VBA code.
VBA code is easy to learn and implement.
With little efforts, you can master VBA Programming.
Which means you will not be just limited to macro recording…,
you will have even more control on your code and can really extend and customize the macro to your imagination.
You can extend the excel functionality by creating your own custom functions and Add-ins.
