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 AUTOMATION.

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!

“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 andthis one from Daniel is by far the most interesting and easy to understand. I've done exactly 107 lectures so far and alreadywasable to automate 80% of my tasks at workthat I've been doing manually for years...I'm angry with myself because of thetime I wasted by not buyingthis course earlier. I can't even imagine what I will be able to do after finishing the entire course :)"- Robert
