Best way to learn VBA? Start with Visual Basic?

P: 1
Hello,

If I want to learn VBA should I start by learning Visual Basic? I have no background in coding, but I need to learn VBA. So what is the best way to learn it; do I need to learn Visual Basic first before I start on VBA or can I start with vba?

Not sure about the best way, that might be to do a course somewhere.

But I think that one relatively easy (and cheap) way is to start by recording macros in Excel or Word, then editing them and playing with the code that was generated, to get a feel for how it all works. Since you performed the action, this should help to establish the connection between the code and what it does.

(Of course it's hard for me to judge, since I had been using various versions of BASIC for years before I saw VBA, or VB.)
