Excel, like Visual Basic, experienced several revisions during the 1990s, roughly in-line with the changes to the Windows operating system, but Excel 5, released in early 1994, included the first version of VBA. This was a big step forward for VBA was intended to unify the programming code behind the Microsoft Office application program suite. Office was originally released to run on Windows 3.1, and contained a suite of programs including: Word, Excel, Outlook and Access.
Following the early success of VBA, Microsoft decided to incorporate VBA into Access (the database application). By the time Office 97 was released, VBA had made its way into four of the five Office applications: Word, Access, Excel and PowerPoint. The fifth Office 97 application, Outlook contained VBScript a variant of the Visual Basic language widely used for Internet applications.
VBA is a programming language created by Microsoft that can be built into applications. For example, VBA for Excel is a programming language that is contained within Excel. It primary purpose is to enhance and automate applications that use Excel. VBA is based on the stand-alone Visual Basic language but works within some other Microsoft application.
There are many advantages for incorporating VBA into applications.
VBA Excel version compatibility
When Microsoft introduced Excel 97, some radical changes to both the language and the developers interface were made. Excel 97 was the first time that Active X components could be embedded with worksheets and user forms.Compatibility with previous versions of VBA is far less likely than with versions released after Excel 97. At the time of writing this book, these include Excel 2000 and Excel XP. The VBA macros written in this book should work with versions of Excel 97 onwards. However, sometimes reference will be made to commands that were developed for Excel 5.
VB and VBA
VBA is not to be confused with Visual Basic; Visual Basic is a stand-alone program that runs independently.VBA, on the other hand, is part of an Office application, and therefore cannot work without the Office application. For example, VBA for Excel is part of the Excel program, and cannot run without Excel. There are many similarities in the language constructs however, and as already stated VBA is highly compatible with VB.
