What is this book about?
Excel 2000 is an important part of the Office 2000 program suite, and will be available in the Premium, Professional, Standard and Small Business editions of Office 2000. Excel has traditionally been the Office suite spreadsheet program par excellence. It still remains that way, but with Office 2000 there is a strong emphasis on between-application automation, ease of use, and the smart new bells and whistles that 2000 brings.
Using VBA (Visual Basic for Applications), the user can program his or her own programs in what is essentially a subset of the Visual Basic programming languages. This is tremendously powerful, as it allows you to create great User Interfaces (forms etc), as a front end to actual spreadsheet and database storage and manipulation. This continues to be one of the great strengths of programming Excel VBA.
What does this book cover?
This book presents a full reference to the Excel object model — which is essentially the object-oriented system of organizing the functional capacities that make up the Excel program. There is a short introduction to VBA itself, and the rest of the book documents aspects of programming Excel through that object model.
This book is in three broad sections:
Who is this book for?
This book is for the Excel developer or user who already has a knowledge of spreadsheets, and the basic objects of an Excel spreadsheet, and now wants a solid and detailed reference to the main object models present in the Excel structure with examples of how to use these models.

Wrox's growing reputation for putting out well-organized, detail-rich books for programmers gets a boost from Excel 2000 VBA Programmer's Reference. This book--a tutorial as well as a reference--holds a wealth of chewy facts that Excel developers will find very valuable.
The tutorial, accounting for half of the book, covers the various mechanisms available for referring to particular files, sheets, cells, and ranges of cells. It also addresses the graphical representation of data--particularly in charts--and explains the most important aspects of controls and the events they generate. Green--unlike many VBA authors--covers internationalization issues in considerable depth. This is the best VBA book on the market for those planning to write programs for a multilingual usage of Excel. There is also a VBA primer that covers critical VBA syntax and the essentials of object-orientation as it applies to the Excel environment.
The two reference sections--one for Excel's VBA objects and one for the VBA Extensibility (VBE) environment--make up the last half of Excel 2000 VBA Programmer's Reference. The references are comprehensive, but they're organized in a strange way--they list properties, methods, and events with their names, return data types, and descriptions in columns. This would be okay, but when an object's list of members extends over several pages it's impossible to be immediately sure of which object the list refers to. The object name ought to appear on each page. --David WallFrom the Publisher:
