Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)

  • An object-oriented programming language

    • Instructions for the manipulation of objects

    • A structured way to provide instructions to Excel

  • Excel has an Object Library that defines its set of objects (e.g. workbooks, charts, ranges of cells)


Logic of language

Logic of Language

  • First part of a command identifies the object

  • Second part of command:

    • Sets a property of the object (e.g. color or font)

    • Takes an action on the object (e.g.copy or move)

    • Sets an attribute to the object (e.g. assigns a value to it using := )


Example of an instruction

Example of an Instruction

  • Application.Workbooks(“Book1.xls”).Worksheets(“Sheet1”).Range(“A1”).Font.Name=“Arial”

  • Application.Workbooks(“Book1.xls”).Worksheets(“Sheet1”).Range(“A1”) is the object

  • Font.Name=“Arial” is the property being set


Control of vba

Control of VBA

  • A Procedure is a set of instructions that operate on a set of objects

  • A Function is a procedure that returns a value as a result

  • A Subroutine is a procedure that can be run or used by another macro

Debugging vba code

Debugging VBA Code

  • When VBA encounters a problem, it will highlight line in yellow.

  • Use [f8] key to step through code

  • Use the Reset icon button (square) at top of VBA to exit step-through mode and trouble- shoot code or Excel/VBA settings. Cannot retry macro until yellow highlight is gone.
