VBA Reference Books

Excel 2010 Power Programming with VBA (Mr. Spreadsheet's Bookshelf)

I just received an email stating that John Walkenbach's new book, John Walkenbach's Favorite Excel 2010 Tips and Tricks, has been released and will soon be available. You can purchase it now (I've provided links below to help you out, click on the orange book.

I've been a fan of Mr. Spreadsheet for the last couple of years, and I found his book, Excel 2007 Power Programming with VBA (the purple book) to be an indispensible resource. He has a witty, non-stuffy style of writing, all his code is well commented and it contains many useful, real-world examples as well as providing technical inside for those who want to know more. Nothing is more annoying than an author with a business background who tries to write computer material, but John Walkenbach really enjoys using Excel and it shows in his writing.

Luckily, with Office 2010 just released Tuesday, Walkenbach also has his Excel 2010 Power Programming availalble. While some of his material is unchanged between versions, its still amazing how much the guy can write.
