Here is a sample of what you will find in lesson 11 of the downloadable Tutorial on Excel macros

Lesson 11 on Excel macros (VBA):

VBA Coding Tips

When you start assembling VBA words into sentences and paragraphs, it is said that you are coding or developing VBA code. In this lesson you will learn important coding tips and many special VBA words. Here is a  tip and an exercise that will give you an idea of what you will find in the complete lesson 11 of the Downloadable Tutorial on Excel Macros.


Coding Tip 1

Always key in your code in lower case letters. If the spelling is right, the necessary letters will be capitalized.  If no letter gets capitalized .... check your spelling.

Exercise 1-1

Step 1: Open a new workbook in Excel and use the ALT/F11 keys to go to the visual basic editor.

Step 2: In the code window of any of the sheets copy/paste the following macro:

Sub proTest()

   activecel.cop

End Sub

Notice that there are no capital letters in activecel.cop because both words are misspelled.

Step 3: Add a second "l" to "activecell" and an "y" to "copy" and then click "Enter". The sentence now reads: Activecell.Copy with a capital "A" and a capital "C" because both words are spelled correctly.

You now understand that significant letters are capitalised in each correctly spelled VBA word when you move away from the line.

Step 5: Close Excel without saving anything
