01 – The VBA Editor

In this post, we will be examining the VBA Editor and taking a look at its various facilities to aid with coding.

The VBA Editor is what we use to enter VBA code for Forms, Reports, custom functions and more. In fact all Microsoft Office applications (Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Outlook) use the same VBA Editor, so although we are learning to program with Access you will also be able to transfer ALL your skills and knowledge and even automate between applications.app-composer-icon-code-1024x1024
