    Comments about oreilly Mastering VBA for Microsoft Office 2016, 3rd Edition:

    I'm using Excel and PowerPoint and an add-in for PowerPoint called PPTools to do Mail Merge for slides. These tools generate ppt files. With the help this book I was able to develop an extension to the add-in that generates PDF files.

    I started with zero vba experience and the book helped me understand the vba development environment as well as vba coding.
