Visual Basic for Applications, Excel's powerful built-in programming language, permits you to easily incorporate user-written functions into a spreadsheet.1
You can easily calculate Black-Scholes and binomial option prices, for example. Lest you think VBA is something esoteric which you will never otherwise need to know, VBA is now the core macro language for all Microsoft's office products, including Word. It has also been incorporated into software from other vendors. You need not write complicated programs using VBA in order for it to be useful to you. At the very least, knowing VBA will make it easier for you to analyze relatively complex problems for yourself.
This document presumes that you have a basic knowledge of Excel, including the use of built-in functions and named ranges. I do not presume that you know anything about writing macros or programming.
The examples here are mostly related to option pricing, but the principles apply generally to any situation where you use Excel as a tool for numerical analysis.
All of the examples here are contained in the Excel workbook VBA.XLS.

EXCEL VBA (Visual Basic for Application) is a programming language to use Visual Basic code to run the many features of the EXCEL Application.
A program written in VBA is often called a macro.
Macros can be used to automate repetitive tasks under EXCEL. They can also be used to create dialog boxes to make an application developed under EXCEL more user-friendly.
A macro can be created using the macro recorder, which does not requires no knowledge of the VBA language.
However, a macro created in this way will only run on a set of cells data and product code will not always be very effective. To be able to create macros specific to its needs, effective and interactive, you have to learn how to program in VBA.
Create a macro MACRO1 which writes in cell A1 the text "AgroParisTech" in bold type and in cell G1 the date of the day in italics.
Before you start recording, you need to ask yourself several questions:
Question: what to do so that the cell active after the execution of the macro is cell A1?
