Summary
  • Microsoft's Visual Basic Applications (VBA) is more than just a tool to control the Excel spreadsheet program and can be used to access the Windows API. Users can create dynamic link libraries within Windows API and use them from VBA. Windows API is a set of more than 700 functions held mainly in the KERNEL.EXE, USER.EXE and GDI.EXE files that are included with Windows. When C programmers write programs for Windows, these are some of the functions they use and many of these same functions are already contained within Visual Basic. For instance, users can open files from Visual Basic that they might open from Windows by first declaring the function, because Visual Basic does not know about undeclared functions. The user must allocate space for the information because the function will want a place to put a response. Then the user can call the function and display the result.
