Chapter 2. The Basics of Writing and Testing VBA Cod

  • Creating code modules

  • Creating and calling procedures

  • Using variables to store values

  • Controlling the flow of programs

  • Debugging and handling errors

This chapter will serve as a building block for the more advanced VBA concepts covered in later chapters. The techniques covered in this chapter and in most of the remaining chapters are used during the development and testing phases of the Systems Development Life Cycle, as defined in Chapter 1.
