which is the best visual basic for...

Triathlete1981
excel 2003. i need to write some scripts that will make life a little easier for people at work. macros haven't been able to cut it. visual basic is not a strength of mine, and if i knew it, i'd be able to use it for other stuff as well. we're all running office 2003 at work with xp pro PCs and a couple Vistas. i'm not really concerned about the Vistas. but, is there any particular book or training aide someone can suggest that would help a non-programming person understand visual basic? also, at barnes and noble, there's several books on different versions of visual basic? which visual basic version should i concentrate on for excel 2003?

    Then you want VBA (Visual Basic for Applications)
    The syntax is fairly similar

    Look for VBA Excel 2003 on google

    Sybex do a book Mastering Excel Scripts with VBA. That sounds a bit over the head of a novice, but the others I've seen in the series, do run through the basics first and give a lot of meaningful examples.
