In most engineering work environments, the Microsoft Excel software is used as a spreadsheet to do simple calculations and create charts. But did you know that this software can do way more? Much more than a simple spreadsheet, the Microsoft Excel software comes with numerous powerful functions that can be used to facilitate the processing and analysis of data.

The most interesting and often overlooked aspect of Excel is VBA (Visual Basic for Applications), which is the programming language within Excel, that can be used to create sophisticated user interfaces and unlock the real processing power of Excel.
