Others mentioned MrExcel.com as a good resource for VBA help.

I'd also mention (and maybe somebody did and I missed it) UtterAccess.com for Access questions. They also have some Excel forums, but most of the stuff there is on Access.

You start Visual Basic from the Windows Start menu. The Visual Basic development environment itself usually appears on a submenu called Microsoft Visual Basic 5.0, although yours might be called something different due to installation differences. You will see additional programs listed on the Microsoft Visual Basic 5.0 submenu, but when you select Visual Basic 5.0 from the submenu, Visual Basic loads and appears on your screen.
Although VBA in Excel is a version of VB, this will probably be of little help. You will probably want to stick with books/articles dealing specifically with VBA, which is used with Excel, Access, other MS Office apps, AND any other commercial apps that have licensed the VBA SDK.

I say you should start with programming the TI-994A. Or the Sinclair ZX-81.

I would also add:

Actually, even on Mars, with a 687 day revolution, 2010 is almost a year and a half away.

On Saturn, however, with a 29 year revolution, 2010 is, like, tomorrow. So just think of it that way.

Thanks. I was actually looking for an RN, though.

i need to learn VBA for real now. i've gotten away with looking at previous code and manipulating it for my needs. but now i really need to learn it and use it. i'm gonna pick up Excel VBA Programming For Dummies by Walkenbach tonight. It's a 2004 version...so maybe there's something more current from him. i'm sure this one is fine if there isn't.
