VBA is the programming language for the Microsoft® Office suite and many other applications. VBA gives you complete control of Excel, allowing you to do anything from automating Excel tasks to developing full applications, using Excel as the development environment.
Excel 2002 is an important upgrade to the Office suite spreadsheet program. It shows Microsoft's commitment to moving Office to be a web-enabled productivity tool, a rich client for working with web-based data, with new features such as SmartTags and XML support.
Based on the successful content and format of Excel 2000 VBA Programmer's Reference, this new edition has been fully updated for Excel 2002. The authors are all Excel MVPs, involved daily in supporting the Excel VBA programmer community.

The third and final part is a complete reference to the Excel, VBE, and Common Office Object Models.
