There are many online training courses on Excel VBA; but this is the only Word VBA course dedicated specifically to using VBA macro programming to automate Microsoft Word.
” This course helped me develop my own macros, and start grasping more complex coding principles. Thank you! “
The Word VBA video tutorials in this course are designed to give you all the ammunition you’ll need to start creating your own custom macros to automate Microsoft Word tasks and operations.
Microsoft VBA (Visual Basic for applications) allows you to control Microsoft Office programmatically. You can write macros which perform repetitive tasks saving your organisation, or your clients, time and money.
Word users learn VBA macro programming for a number of reasons: some people are looking to enhance their career prospects; some are looking to save themselves time; others are aiming to save their company money and increase productivity.

•Perhaps you are a Microsoft Office specialist looking to enhance your skills portfolio and make yourself truly indispensable in the workplace.
•Perhaps you have already learned how to automate Microsoft Excel using VBA and you are now looking to do the same with Microsoft Word.
Whatever your reasons for wanting to learn to write Word VBA macros, this course will equip you with everything you need to get started and feel confident about writing your own Word VBA code.

This course has broken down the concepts of code and syntax and shown me how to create useful and efficient interactions between the various code parts of my project – I can now see much better ways of structuring and coding my Userform & document and will be rewriting the majority of it… “
