The Ultimate Excel Programmer Course

Teach Excel to Do Your Work FOR YOU. . .

Microsoft Office is everywhere, installed on over 750 million computers, but most users only know how to set up a basic table or maybe even do a few formulas here and there.

In my course, I teach you how to take Excel by the horns and make it do whatever you want, whenever you want. It can go through loads of information and create a printable report for you. You can make custom forms so that you can access, analyze, edit, or add new information quickly to your data tables/ worksheets.

Excel programming utilizes a simple but effective tool called "VBA" - the hidden programming language that runs quietly in the background while you work. It’s very easy and straight-forward to use.

I'll show you the easiest tricks to learn this basic language in a fun, progressive method. Learn at your own pace. With each of my short, info-packed lectures, you'll learn another essential skill that you can immediately use. You'll find yourself handling these Automation tools instantly and in any spreadsheet you already use every day. If there's one thing I'm good at - and my students are good at - it's

My motto is, "If I'm not making everybody's job easier, quicker and more enjoyable, I don't deserve to have this job" - and that's what I live by.

Take this course and access your true potential.

Oh, and I want to be the first to hear about your New Raise you get once you're making Excel Programs and running everything on autopilot for your co-workers.


Here's what some of the students are saying:

“I love this course. Extremely easy to follow along. If you are looking to learn more about Excel this is it. ” - Jim C.

“Loving this course. The information is presented quite clear and concise, and it is a really great way of learning VB really fast, yesterday I was a total ignorant of the subject. Today I programmed my first macro and cannot wait to learn more.” - Marcela T.

“I had experimented with VBA previously, but I really feel like this course is exactly what I needed to take my Excel knowledge to the next level. In only 2 weeks I've improved my reporting exponentially and it's all thanks to this course. " - Ryan S.

“You can't go wrong with Daniel Strong. ” - Steven S.

“The presenter explains in detail and demonstrates what he's covering, easy to follow along and learn. ” - David B.

“Teaches you the fundamental of VBA programming without any prior experience. Shows with easy to follow Example. . thanks for the video. ” - Sean C.

"I've taken several different VBA courses here on Udemy and this one from Daniel is by far the most interesting and easy to understand. I've done exactly 107 lectures so far and already was able to automate 80% of my tasks at work that I've been doing manually for years... I'm angry with myself because of the time I wasted by not buying this course earlier. I can't even imagine what I will be able to do after finishing the entire course :)" - Robert

“Well explained, easy to understand lectures. Enjoyable and informative videos.” - Marlena

“Very clear explanations broken down in short videos. Daniel goes at a slow pace that is easy to follow and understand, even for people with no programming experience.” - Gustavo P.

“Best course on VBA ever taken. Thanks a lot. ” - Nikita L.

“This is an excellent course. There's a lot of good, useful "stuff" here. The examples are practical and real-world. ” - Todd W.

“By large and far, one of the best step by step guide to VBA programming I have ever seen. I have been playing around with VBA for over a year now, have watched countless videos and have read numerous articles and "How-to" guides, but I have never seen something this complete, this throughout. I am amazed at how little I actually new about the VBA world. Thanks a million. ” - Alex B.

“Everything I have been looking for, you would have to buy multiple books for this level of instruction. ” - Luke S.

"Excellent VBA basic to advance tutorial." – Sandeep G.

“This course is good for beginners and for experienced programmers. Experienced programmers may want to skip through some sections on basics, but it is good to see how the basics work in the context of and excell worksheet. He goes over different events and triggers (like buttons) to execute code. This is a really good course if you plan to do some pretty complex vba code with forms and reports.” - Christian H.

“Very helpful if you do any type of data analysis.” – Jonathan D.

“I think this is an excellent gateway to the tools we need to use going forward. I like thehands on nature.” – Andre C.

It's too complicated to understand for a beginner So far so good, I'm very familiar with VBA, so it starts out basic and gets deeper as you go further.

wonderful coarse So far so good for an old man (73).

Daniel's step by step explanations are concise and clear, and make it seem pretty easy.

Is the best course I have ever taken so far, he goes from cero and explains it step by step in a simple way.

Clear, simple explanations - not too much in each video Great short explanations, step by step process, just like coding.

Well, he explain step by step very clear Good content.

I do not see the porous of these first for modules ja Somehow I'm liking the good explanation and simple descriptions of this course so far Basic so far , good to review Simple step by step.

Step by step and clear Clear, concise instruction with good use of visuals.

Simple and easy to understand One of the best VBA course taught by Dan very thorough details and step by step for each exercise.

The step by step Procedure and sequence of the topics are so apt that you can relate the previous code with the next.

Whole VBA was new for me and its guided me step by step and now I am confident that I can write macro easily.

The second half lacks teaching the syntax for full step by step understanding.

Sound has it's ups and downs, but it's a Great Course from a Great Instructor Dan takes a step by step approach that's easy to follow.

detailed explanation step by step.

Excellent step by step guidance.

looking forward

Very challenging to take all information in so am looking forward to the reference items at the end for refreshing my learnings Perfect to get started - I'm ready for the harder stuff now.

Looking forward to the future examples with which the functions will be presented Very detailed and easy to comprehend Good start and good speed.

Looking forward to what is coming.

Looking forward to continuing learning.

I am looking forward to writing my own UserForms or even creating a VBA script to produce graphs/charts.

Although I just started the course, I'm giving it a rating of 4 1/2 stars as I am already looking forward to the following sections.

Looking forward for what you have next.

Meanwhile, however, I am looking forward to the time when I would be able to use the knowledge to do something useful.

I am quite a VBA developer, so I am looking forward to the advanced parts of this course.

I'm looking forward for Daniel's next courses.

Looking forward to practing what ive learned.

I find this course very engaging, looking forward to get the next courses from daniel.

I am looking forward to findind more ways to use this in the real world.

real world

a real world example would be better, say how this would be used at a financial institution like a bank or a lending company Very engaging and the examples were super usefuls!

I would suggest another course focusing on broaden VBA programming skills by using practical topics in the real world.

More real world exercises to ensure the concept is fully understood would make this course "golden".

IAB yes The instructor explained very well,i have to practice and see if everything works out well in the real world.I often have to go back to the videos to refresh myself.Thank you very much for allowing us to download the material as well.

It involves content that can be applied in real world problems involving Excel.

Not much connectivity to real world problems that I could see.

I suggest to start with some real world situations that we need to solve quickly, and then show us how to do it using VBA.

Covered the ground I expected and instills confidence in application to real world.

You can't beat real world applications.

I think the course could benefit from more hands-on exercises and real world examples.

Of course, the first steps by myself required some more research on internet and also some more debug trouble shouting as the real world needs are not so straight as course examples.

With what is learned in this course you can perform quite a bit of real world solutions.

If there was a consistent, real world project we could step through it would be more beneficial.

I would expect a more real world exercise instead of teaching the funstions within the VBA.

easy to follow along

This is quite new to me but pace is good - I guess I will understand the practical application a bit more as we go through the course Good class, just wish it was updated for current excel and was more friendly to mac users It’s very easy to follow along and a great place to start from scratch Algunas teclas para accionar comandos como alt+f11 o f8, no se realizan como se ve en el video.

Yeap Easy to follow along.

Very well one and easy to follow along.

The presenter explains in detail and demonstrates what he is covering, easy to follow along and learn!

worth the money

Definitely worth the money The course if good for people who wants to learn VBA with limited time.

Well worth the money.

Well worth the money and is in very handy size lecture nuggets to either spend a weekend going from beginning to end, or just fitting a bite size lecture in a coffee break or boring meeting at work (I don't condone the latter, but you know we all do that) Thank you Dan.

well worth the money!

I believe this course overall is good and worth the money.

This course is definitely worth the money.

The debugging section alone was worth the money.

Definitely worth the money, makes Excel so much more powerful.

This course is worth the money if you know nothing about VBA in Excel.

So I am about a third of the way through and this course has really proven to be worth the money.

This has been well worth the money.

broken down

Easy to understand how the concepts are broken down.

He has broken down the content into sections and bite size lessons so you can get right to what you want to learn - no fluff.

I like the fact that the "Chapters" are broken down into short sessions which focus on one process.

The content is broken down in a very understandable way.

Very clear explanations broken down in short videos.

The curriculm is also broken down enough that watching one the phone doesn't mean your missing out.

quick abnd to the point Course material is nicely broken down into manageable, easily understandable lessons.

It is well broken down and I have been understanding every bit of it.

Broken down into logical units.

easy to follow, small bits It is nicely broken down into bite sized chunks.

knows his stuff

There's no doubt Dan knows his stuff!

He clearly knows his stuff.

The instructor clearly knows his stuff, and perhaps want to show how real programmer works, though I would have preferred if he just went straight to the point and highlighted potential pitfalls.

The instructor knows his stuff, but there is so much information and it is going too fast, in my opinion.

The instructor clearly knows his stuff.

playing around with

Currently enjoying playing around with it Some of the "F" keys do not work on my computer.

In the final phases of the course, he is just playing around with VBA.

I definitely recommend it for anyone who would like to start playing around with this whole other dimension of Excel.

I have been playing around with VBA for over a year now, have watched countless videos and have read numerous articles and "How-to" guides, but I have never seen something this complete, this throughout.

well thought out

Very well thought out content and delivery.

What I liked about the course: +The course itself is well thought out with good examples.

Exercises are well thought out - not so difficult that they discourage the student and not so easy that they offer no challenge - good balance!

Methodical and well thought out...simply flows...!

developer tab

The course starts slow although it was fine for me because it talked about features of Excel that i didn't know about like the developer tab range object and other things.

This course gives you an extensive look into the entire contents of the developer tab.

i want to really serious learner cause without which i can't survice ; necessary is mother of investion hopefully this course would help me lot thanks the video is showing an excel version that is older than the one I have, so getting that developer tab on my menu ribbon was lot harder and took many more googling steps than I expected Although I already had an interest in excel, the instructor does a great job at showing how this course is relevant and can be useful, thus generating more interest and desire to dive into it.

Looks like we will be learning a lot and I'm excite Good match - only tricky thing was my developer tab screen didn't have one of the parts of the screen showing and took awhile to get it sorted.

Other than that, pretty clear Adding developer tab - no explanation of how to do in earlier versions of excel (eg excel 2007) I don't like the country euphimisms and I wish new concepts/ vocabulary were defined before being used.

advanced examples required Using Office 2007, took a while to find the developer tab due to it not being in the location specified.

The developer tab instruction was an easy-to-follow walkthrough.

put together

I already put together my first application to manage human resources and the users love it.

Lots of great content , I feel like I could put together a simple form and with a lot of help from online sources could some more advanced stuff.

But, WOW Daniel has put together a course that makes learning VBA, advanced Excel techniques, and even just programming in general super easy to understand.

The course is put together really well and he goes through everything you need to know while also supplying great course material along the way that you are able to download.

The instructions are very clear, the examples are easy to follow and course is put together in a simple logical format.

Though Daniel put together a video that caught my eye in the promotional video, this was not the course for me.

But, the primary problem is that it is not put together well.
