Excel Hint 08172014 – Excel Forums

What do you do if you need help with your Excel files, and in particular, with VBA (Visual Basic for Applications – Macros)?

If you are having challenges with the code you wrote or inherited, and you cannot afford to hire a professional to help you, one of the easiest ways to get the help you need is to visit a few of the top Excel forums. Most are free, and for those that charge, the monthly fee is minimal.

Here is the lowdown on how it works, in a nutshell. On the top forums you post your question(s) and you then wait for one or more answers. Answers often come right away, and the question you are asking may have possibly been asked in the past by others needing the same type of help and as such the answer may already be there for you. Once you find the answer you can either use that to help you with your code or you can further query your need until the code works the way you want it to and until you fully understand it. For more details on how this works, visit the forums listed below. While there make sure to register, and if they offer free webinars, videos, newsletters, and such, you may want to take advantage of those as well.

Let’ start by listing the five top Excel forums:


There are also a lot of firms where you can Get Excel Help on a paid basis, but that is another post. A few of them are pasted below just in case that is your need.

Until next time, Excel well.
