My First Add-in VBA Tool for Microsoft Office
The Microsoft Office suite of programs has a rich set of features that make it easy to work on various tasks and be productive. These features allow you to manipulate, modify, and customize how you work on documents, spreadsheets, presentations, emails, forms, and databases. However, if you are going to do hugely repetitive tasks, especially complex ones, it would be great to do them with the help of VBA, using My First Add-In.
What is VBA?
VBA, or Visual Basic for Applications, allows users to define certain functions to help them automate processes while working with Microsoft Office applications. VBA allows users to access the Windows API and other low-level functionality so that they can work better or customize processes to their own needs and workflows.
VBA is built into most Office applications, and are powerful tools to help people become more productive while using Office applications for all kinds of work across various industries. While many Office pros can execute these VBAs, the challenge lies in distributing this to their colleagues, team, managers, and to the public in general.
For the pros, it’s easy to work with the Ribbon user-interface and do coding, as well as some graphic design work thrown in. However, not everyone is well-versed with this, so this is where My First Add-in steps in.
