What is this book about? Excel 2000 is an important part of the Office 2000 program suite, and will be available in the Premium, Professional, Standard and Small Business editions of Office 2000. Excel has traditionally been the Office suite spreadsheet program par excellence. It still remains that way, but with Office 2000 there is a strong emphasis on between-application automation, ease of use, and the smart new bells and whistles that 2000 brings. Using VBA (Visual Basic for Applications), the user can program his or her own programs in what is essentially a subset of the Visual Basic programming languages. This is tremendously powerful, as it allows you to create great User Interfaces (forms etc), as a front end to actual spreadsheet and database storage and manipulation. This continues to be one of the great strengths of programming Excel VBA. What does this book cover? This book presents a full reference to the Excel object model — which is essentially the object-oriented system of organizing the functional capacities that make up the Excel program. There is a short introduction to VBA itself, and the rest of the book documents aspects of programming Excel through that object model. This book is in three broad sections: * The first part introduces Excel and VBA. * The second offers interesting, thematic discussions of some of the capacities available to Excel VBA. * The third and final part offers a full reference to the object model of Excel. Who is this book for? This book is for the Excel developer or user who already has a knowledge of spreadsheets, and the basic objects of an Excel spreadsheet, and now wants a solid and detailed reference to the main object models present in the Excel structure with examples of how to use these models.
