A 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.
My Excel Addict Bonus: 'Power Excel with Mr. Excel' e-book
If you register for Allen's class by Thursday, September 22, it is available at 20% off the regular price.
Plus, I'll include the e-book edition of 'Power Excel with Mr. Excel' by Bill Jelen (a $25 value) as my exclusive Excel Addict bonus to you. This is Mr. Excel's most popular book and I'm giving it to you for free! Just e-mail me your receipt, once you've signed up for Allan's Macros course, to claim your bonus.
Do yourself a favor and check out this Macros course now. You've got nothing to lose and an entirely new skillset to gain.
Give it a try. Remember that you've only got until September 22 to take advantage of the early bird pricing, though. (You can still sign up for about a week past that date, but you won't receive the 20% early bird discount.)
Keep on Excelling!

P.S. Below are some of the questions Allen was asked about his course.
P.P.S. If you decide to enroll in Allen's 'Excel Macros for Beginners' course, please send me your feedback whether it's good or bad. It's the only way I can determine if I should recommend the course again in the future.
the spirit of full disclosure, you need to know that I do make a small
commission if you decide to join Allen's course. I don't just recommend
