Office development - VBA

VBA code example

The programming language for Office.

Microsoft Office is an amazingly powerful suite of programs that often inspires people to use it for all sorts of things for their business. Excel is probably the one that does this more than the others.

Here's a couple of examples of what can be done:

Excel VBA

You may want some code written to automate Excel. Call us to discuss what an Excel developer can do for you.

Access VBA

Fairly quickly when developing Access applications, you find that a sprinkling of some code would do wonders to your system. Macros can't do everything! Talk to us about what an Access developer can bring to your database.

Word Development

Whilst the VBA code can live in just one application, we frequently 'drive' Word from a different one. An example is to create Word documents to print and send from data in Access. The button in Access starts Word and creates a document. The benefit using Word is the power available to format the document.
One of our manufacturing clients now has a system that produces paper forms that machine operators take with them. Another used our Word development skills to have acknowledgments generated for payments received and contracts created for the property their clients buy.

Here's another example that a Word developer can create.


PS. By the way... it stands for Visual Basic for Applications!
