What You Need to Use this Book

Nearly everything discussed in this book has examples with it. All the code is written out and there are plenty of screenshots where they are appropriate. The version of Windows you use is not important. It is important to have a full installation of Excel and, if you want to try the more advanced chapters involving communication between Excel and other Office applications, you will need a full installation of Office. Make sure your installation includes access to the Visual Basic Editor and the VBA Help files. It is possible to exclude these items during the installation process.

Note that Chapter 18 requires you to have VB6 installed because it covers the topics of COM Addins. Chapter 23 requires you to have IIS 5.0, SQL Server 2000, and SQL Server 2005 installed in order to interact with OLAP data sources.
