Hi fellow Excel Addict,

'Excel Macros for Beginners' Online Video CourseA few months ago I told my subscribers about a great online video course called 'Excel Macros for Beginners' by Allen Wyatt.

Allen is offering this course again this month. If you missed out on it the last time here's your second chance.

Excel Macros for Beginners

Excel is a great tool for working with all types of data. You can slice and dice that data in lots of preset ways using the tools and functions that the program makes available. You can develop your own formulas that mix Excel's rich set of functions to get just the results you need.

Note that I said that Excel allows you to work in lots of "preset" ways. For some people, using those preset ways is enough, but for others, Excel may be a bit restrictive in allowing them to work with their data in exactly the way they need.

That's where the power of macros comes into play. With macros you can extend what Excel can do, making it process your data, worksheets, and workbooks just the way you want.

If you know how. (That's always the kicker, right?)

You see, if you've never worked with them before, the whole idea of macros can be a bit intimidating. It needn't be, particularly if you have the right instructor showing you how to create and use your own macros.

Fortunately, I know the "right instructor." Allen Wyatt, a friend of mine, has been publishing his ExcelTips newsletter since 1998. (Yes, for 18 years!) He's also been writing books about Excel and teaching others how to use it for even longer than that.

The cool thing is that he has put together what he's called the "Excel Macros for Beginners" course, and it's awesome! He's prepared a great overview to the course that you should definitely check out if you are new to the whole idea of creating your own macros.

You've always wanted to learn Macros. Now's the time!

Allen opens the doors to his course only a few times each year, and they are open right now. The great news is that you can sign up for the course at 20% off the regular price! (This early bird pricing is available for only a limited time.) When you register for the course, you get 24/7 access to all materials--and there's a boatload of them--for a full year. Plus, Allen personally provides support for the first 6 weeks of the course.

Macros are a great tool that can enhance what you do with Excel. Those who learn how to create and use them aren't limited to the built-in tools provided by the program. Allen's course can provide you with the valuable skills you need to finally master macros.

FAQ: 'Excel Macros for Beginners' Online Video Course

Question: Do I have to learn how to create macros in order to use Excel?

Allen's Answer: No, you don't. In fact, you can go through life without ever knowing what a macro is. For some people, their use of Excel doesn't really require the use of macros. For other people, however, they immediately become more productive (and more valuable to their teams and company) when they add "macro skills" to their Excel toolkit.

Question: Do you think I can learn how to create macros?

Allen's Answer: Yes, I do. In fact, I haven't run into a single Excel user who couldn't learn how to create macros with just a little bit of effort. It isn't magic, and it isn't a "black art." With the right instruction, you can be creating macros in no time! (And, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that I think the Excel Macros for Beginners course is "the right instruction.")

Question: Is it hard to learn to create macros?

Allen's Answer: That's a tough one to answer. Everyone is different, and everyone comes to the table with different skills and aptitudes. As I said, I think that everyone can learn how to create and use macros, but it really all depends on your determination and drive. This is no different than acquiring any new skill; if you make the effort, put in the time, and do the work, you'll reap the benefits available through the course.

Question: When and how will I receive each lesson in the course?

Allen's Answer: Once you register for the course, all lessons and materials are immediately available. That way you can learn at your own speed, day or night, weekdays or weekends—it is up to you. Plus, registration entitles you to access all lesson materials for an entire year.

Question: What type of time commitment does the course require?

Allen's Answer: If you take a look at the web page I've prepared, you'll find that the video modules that make up the course are, in aggregate, just over 12 hours long. Each module is anywhere from a few minutes to about 30 minutes in length, and I provide complete information (once registered) as to the length of each module. That way you can plan out what is best for your schedule as you discover how to create macros.
