Description

Over the past nine years, I’ve discovered just how POWERFUL Excel Macros can be.

As my Excel VBA knowledge grew, I started to get better tasks and projects from my management, resulting in high visibility to senior stakeholders, job level promotion and upgraded personal brand at work.

My income grew as well very soon: 3 months after I first started to use Excel VBA to automate my work, I was awarded my very first significant bonus in my career.

The hours I was able to save by replacing manual Excel work with automated Excel Macros made me feel more energized and I could enjoy my free time more than ever.

So in this course I’m going to share my exact learning strategy with you, by giving you the MOST critical ingredient: a simple formula to learn Excel Macros for beginners from scratch in 7 steps.

  1. Get started with recorded macros

  2. Learn how to edit recorded macros

  3. Create your own VBA code from scratch

  4. Learn about the 3 fundamental concepts in Excel VBA: variables, objects and methods & properties

  5. Put the LOOP structures to work

  6. Take decisions with IF statements

  7. Create interactive Excel Macros with MsgBox and InputBox

This is the simplest path to learn Excel Macros from zero, for beginners, and trust me, it works.


Listen to what others say about the course

I took this course not only because of how useful it was for me at work but also to improve my over all Excel skills and all I can say is - BRILLIANT! The course pace was just right, everything well explained and perfectly structured. I really appreciate the real world cases and the practical approach Mr. Ilicea provided. The Training Materials were a great addition and well prepared which were a great help in the learning by doing process. Looking forward for your next course. Cheers!!

Start to see value from the first minute of the training

This course is only about relevant, powerful and effective tools that Excel Professionals use on a regular basis in Excel to work faster and boost productivity while meeting the data quality requirements.

I concentrated 10 years of daily work in Excel and more than 1 year of course preparation to select for you the most effective Excel Macros, VBA code, real-world cases and exercises. As a result, right after the first video demo, you will be already in the position of using this knowledge in your daily work and it will already start to save you time. This is an effective start to learn Excel macros for beginners.

By the end of this course, you will be confidently recording, editing and especially creating from scratch basic and effective Excel macros. If you are like me, you will love your increased productivity and amazing data quality results obtained with the VBA code.

As a result, you will become much more competitive at work.

You can multi-task while taking an online course yet with this one I was all eyes and ears into what Valentin had to say. Obviously, at the beginning you might find yourself a bit reluctant yet as minutes and hours passed, the chemistry found its course. Thank you Udemy and Valentin for being the best facilitating platform and guide for me to improve my Excel skills and earn real-life changing abilities that makes my day to day office work much better. Kudos!
