ExcelHints.Com becomes part of the VBAX Group


ExcelHints.Com was registered on 2007-04-18 by John Bennett. Since then the blog has developed a strong following.  But in march 2012 things at ExcelHints.Com changed. Due to growing family restraints John was unable to update the site. John decided to sell the site to the VBAX Group in July of 2014 instead of letting the site slowly die, which would be of determent to the loyal users. The VBAX Group is a group of Excel help sites (ExcelHints.Com, Vbaexpress.Com, among a few others).  All aimed at helping people and entities with the full suite of Microsoft applications, including vba. The Vbaexpress forum for example is one of the best places to get free live help with your Microsoft visual basic for applications code. There are so many passionate members of the forum, dedicated to answering your Excel questions.

Since the purchase by the VBAX Group a set of new features have been added to this site, one of them being the Excel VIDEO Hints which are super short videos on anything as simple as the CTRL V function to the more complicated combination of the Index and Match functions. By design most of the videos are less than two minutes in length. Mind you these are not videos on how to do Pivot Tables in Microsoft Excel 2013, as our Microsoft Excel Pivot Table video is over two hours in length. These are super short super and super simple videos (VIDEO Hints). For our longer videos on topics such as on Microsoft Excel 2013 Pivot Tables, Excel Tables, Excel POWER Tips and Tricks, and Excel Functions & Formulas, visit

Another very important addition is that there is a new super easy to remember toll-free phone number you can use to call us directly (844-MS-Excel), as in 844-Microsoft-Excel.  Please call us if you need assistance with your Excel applications, or for help with any of the various Microsoft applications, either programming or training, as that is a new paid service we offer. Note: Most of our Excel programmers and trainers are Microsoft Excel MVPs such as Jacob Hilderbrand, proud owner of VBAX.

The social media accounts are also under works such as Twitter ( and LinkedIn. Please take the time to follow us, you will learn about our free webinars, new YouTube videos, special Saturday workshops and more.

We hope that is not only able to continue to grow and to add value, but also able to add value to the fresh original content of VBAExpress.Com. The idea is that you will see a short Excel Hint here, with or without an Excel VIDEO Hint, then you can visit VBAExpress.Com for much more information on the exact same subject, often including code examples. And make sure that while there don’t forget to join the Microsoft Forums and register for the newsletter.

Thanks for the read.
