At Course Completion

There are two main objectives in this course. The first is to discuss some of the more advanced features of tools and methods covered in the previous Excel courses. The second is to cover the use of the Record Macro functionality in order to automate repetitive tasks. You will need to do this if you want to learn how to use VBA in Excel.
