This Book's Special Features

This Book's Special Features

The Absolute Beginner's Guide to VBA is designed to give you the information you need without making you wade through ponderous explanations and interminable technical background. To make your life easier, this book includes various features and conventions that help you get the most out of the book and VBA itself.

Steps: Throughout this book, each VBA task is summarized in step-by-step procedures.

Things you type: Whenever I suggest that you type something, what you type appears in a bold font.

Visual Basic keywords: Keywords reserved in the Visual Basic for Applications language appear in monospace type.

Commands: I use the following style for application menu commands: File, Open. This means that you pull down the File menu and select the Open command.

The code continuation character (): When a line of code is too long to fit on one line of this book, it is broken at a convenient place, and the code continuation character appears at the beginning of the next line.

This book also uses the following boxes to draw your attention to important (or merely interesting) information.

The Note box presents asides that give you more information about the topic under discussion. These tidbits provide extra insights that give you a better understanding of the task at hand. In many cases, they refer you to other sections of the book for more information.


tip

The Tip box tells you about VBA methods that are easier, faster, or more efficient than the standard methods.


caution

The Caution box tells you about potential accidents waiting to happen. There are always ways to mess things up when you're working with computers. These boxes help you avoid at least some of the pitfalls.
