Learning Visual Basic for Applications has its benefits. Visual basic for applications is a programming language used with Excel to help Excel perform certain tasks with worksheets that you have created that have data on them. It is because of the programming language that you can create macros which are nothing more than blocks of code in VBA that tell Excel to perform a task you want it to do. This benefits you when trying to meet deadlines for your company and allows for massive amounts of data to be analyzed, filtered or even reported on in a certain way much faster with the click of a button from the module worksheets that have been created for business use. It is because of this process that takes place and the release of new versions of Excel to the public that VBA converters are created.
If you are new to Excel you need to know that there are several versions of Excel dating back to 1995. It is also advised that an individual using Excel should become familiar with Excel 5.0/95 before moving onto newer versions of Excel, so that the individual is familiar with the basic navigation of the program. If you are using Excel 5.0/95 and are creating module worksheets, and decide to update to a newer version of Excel, and want to convert all your module worksheets from 95 to the newer versions of Excel, you will need a VBA converter. The Converter for Excel helps with converting macros that are opened or saved in Excel 5.0/95 workbook format. It is free and you can download the converter from Microsoft Office help online.
For people using Excel for everyday business tasks and tracking data, there are some errors that are encountered from time to time with old Excel files being loaded into newer versions of Excel. There are certain circumstances that will call for a converter. Some instances are unique and sometimes if you try to open a VBA project with Microsoft Excel 2007 or Microsoft Excel 2010, you may receive error messages. When someone is trying to look at the error messages that you are receiving when trying to open a VBA project it is best to refer to Microsoft Office online help, websites with information on errors received or join the chat forums due to the wide variety of errors based on unique circumstances you may be encountering.
