Just a completely obscure piece of rhetoric as I pass by..
Microsoft Excel is an extremely powerful set of tools, even without VB. It's amazing how many people turn to VB to do things that Excel can do natively.. Only twice have I ever had to resort to using VBA in an excel workbook, and some of my "programs" are pretty complicated.
But that's not to diminish the power of VB in Excel. PalBus is right, there is a lot more you can do with VBA.
VB does have a hit on your system though. Some advice - always see if there is a way to do it natively in Excel before you resort to writing VB scripts.
