Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) is a programming language designed for Microsoft Office applications. While there isn't a tool or button for every possible scenario in Excel, VBA can help you customize Microsoft Excel to fit your needs. For example, if you find yourself constantly opening new workbooks, you can replace the mouse clicks with a VBA macro, a section of executable code. Once you've written the code, you can open new workbooks with the push of a button.
