In Creating Custom Functions in Excel, Excel expert Patricia McCarthy illustrates how to create a custom function (sometimes called a user-defined function) in Excel. A custom function is a calculation that the user creates and names. This custom function is then stored in Excel and can be recalled whenever it is needed. In this course, we will be using the Visual Basic Editor and VBA keywords; however, this is not a VBA- or programming-specific course. Instead, we’ll work together to create custom functions and then create an Add-In file so that these functions can be used in all your workbooks.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Recognize how to add the Developer tab and access the Visual Basic Editor
- Identify the components of custom functions and how to use them
- Recognize how to create, edit, find, save, and remove custom functions
- Recognize how to document comments regarding the use of a custom function
- Identify error messages and warnings associated with custom functions
