RE: QUESTION ABOUT USING MS EXCEL FOR SE APPLICATIONS.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
There are many good books at local discount book stores or at
http://www.amazon.com for Excel. Regardless of the application, programming
in Excel requires knowing which function to use. For example, you can obtain
values from tables with various lookup functions. You can link to other
programs with some basic Visual Basic programming (something that is beyond
me). However, virtually all of the books available are tailored for the
level or experience of the user.
I suggest you browse through some of them to see suits you.
Another suggestion is for you to check out the SEAOC website. I have placed
a few Excel applications on the site which you can use to learn from. SEAOC
Online Journal also had some good tutorials from Mark Deardorf SE that were
intended to teach engineers how to create tools from Excel (or any other
compatible spreadsheet like Quattro or Lotus 123).
I'll search through some of the older Online issues to see which ones you
might need and you can obtain them through SEAOC by writing seaosc(--nospam--at)aol.com .

Good luck
