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 .
