Programme Objective

There is little dispute that Excel is one of the main tools in the accountants’ toolbox, and yet many are self taught in its features. It is natural for some to feel comfortable with the basics, and to keep away from the more perplexing black art of trying a hand in writing macros. However, one of the more efficient ways to accomplish routine tasks is found to be underutilized by many users is the use of VBA macros in Excel. Many users feel that programming is too complicated, difficult to understand or set-up properly.

This programme includes extensive explanations and examples of how each of these areas could be applied to real-world situations in Management Reporting and typical Accounting/Finance tasks.
