www.wiseowl.co.uk - Connecting to databases in VBA sounds like it should be complicated, but using the ActiveX Data Objects, or ADO, Object Library makes life an awful lot easier! This video teaches you how to reference the library and how to create a connection to almost any type of database by providing the correct connection string (this video covers Microsoft Access and Microsoft SQL Server). We'll also show you how to grab a set of data from a database using recordset objects and even how to write SQL queries in your VBA procedures. The final part of the video talks about how you can take user input to modify the query to allow you to create a simply querying tool in VBA.
Excel VBA is a powerful (and fun!) tool which allows you to automate your Excel workbooks. These videos will help you through your first steps on the way to becoming a programmer in Excel. You don't need any prior programming knowledge as we'll take things from first principles and hopefully give you a flavour of the cool things you can do with a little bit of effort!
