VB v. VBA Q: Do your Visual Basic courses work with Microsoft Office?

A: The Visual Basic training courses that we offer work with Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 which is a programming application and is completely different from the VB that comes with Microsoft Office. MS Office uses VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) which is a special type of VB language - and is very similar to VB, but is not the same.

If you want to learn how to build your OWN programs, then you want to use Visual Basic, not VBA. VBA is used to enhance Microsoft Office applications (Excel, Word, et al).

YES, we are planning on releasing courses that cover VBA programming. Look for each of these as advanced courses under each of the appropriate programs (Word, Excel, Access, etc.). If you want to be notified when these courses are released, please make sure to get on our Mailing List.

YES, if you currently have VB.NET you will benefit from our VB courses. Our VB courses teach the fundaments of the VB language. As long as you're interested in developing Windows applications (as opposed to Web applications) then you will benefit from our VB courses.

Where can you buy a copy of Visual Basic? Your favorite computer software store or online shopping site should carry Microsoft Visual Basic. We don't endorse any specific online shopping site or software vendor. We have, however, heard from some people that it is next to impossible to find copies of VB 6.0, however, again, you should be able to buy VB.NET or the entire Visual Studio package. Again, these packages should work just fine with our VB courses.

For details on our VB courses, please see www.599cd.com/site/courselist/vb.
