    I am using this book as one of my prime sources for learning and using VBA. 3 other people were always borrowing it but they now have bought their own copies. Great Book!

        Comments about oreilly Excel 2007 VBA Programmer's Reference:

        I was delighted when I discovered that Wrox had made "Excel 2007 VBA" and ebook.

        WAS being the operative word here.

        I use these references on a regular basis. In fact I am sitting here looking at the 2" thick dead tree version of this book right now. So, when I discovered that there was a softcopy version I happily went for it.

        Unfortunately, for whatever reason, Wrox apparently thinks that if you're using an ebook you don't need an index.

        To say that I am unhappy is putting it mildly. To say that I am unlikely to buy another Wrox book, is definitely true.
