Microsoft Project Visual Basic for Applications Course Overview

There are many things that you might want Microsoft Project to do which are not built in to the standard tool; create pop up forms, write properties to a text file and with VBA (Visual Basic for Applications), the programming language behind Project, you can automate your own procedures and functions. It is worthwhile learning how to program the other Microsoft Office Tools such as Excel and Word so that you can automate activities between those other tools to extend the capabilities of Project.
This course teaches you how to use VBA to further enhance your use of Microsoft Project.
