Excel VBA Macro Consulting and Programming

Excel VBA Macro consulting services on offer by an experienced and skilful Excel consultant with over 1,600 Excel projects completed for over 600 clients.

Macros are bits of software written in Excel and often called VBA (Visual Basic for Applications). With macros, almost any tasks in Excel can be performed and it’s just imagination that limits what can be achieved with them. It can also be used to automate Word and Outlook from within Excel.

They are used to automate tasks to reduce human error, save time and reduce boredom of repetitive tasks. Excel VBA macros can be used to manipulate files on networks even when the files are not Excel files.
