[NB: The promised diagrammatic explanation (from last week’s tutorial) of the ExcelVB code for launching a URL in a browser will be sent to you during the week]

 

This week I feature an article published by Microsoft to introduce ExcelVB. Note that even though the title specifies Excel 2010, most of what is discussed applies to Excel 2007 upwards.

 

I encourage you to read it from start to end and print it out if you can – because it provides a useful foundation of understanding on which you can build your ExcelVB expertise over time.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
On 4th May 2014, Tayo’s 9 year old domain (Spontaneousdevelopment dot com), was taken over by Aplus.net. Within a few days however, Tayo used his advanced self-taught web development skills to build (and move his website contents into) a SUPERIOR “reincarnation” at http://www.tayosolagbade.com.

Most URLs bearing the old domain name appearing in search engines should now work if “spontaneousdevelopment.com” is replaced with “tayosolagbade.com”. If you experience any difficulties finding a page or document, email Tayo at tksola dot com.

Click “Tayo, What Happened to SpontaneousDevelopmentDotCom?” to read a detailed narrative about how the above event occurred :-))

Here’s an article Tayo wrote, to inspire others to defy adversity, and bounce back to even greater reckoning at what they do EVERY time:
