This book is horrible. I got through about 250 pages and realized everything was useless. He doesn't explain things well at all. If you want my copy I'll ship it to you. I've since bought "Excel 2003 Power Programming with VBA" by John Walkenbach and that book is awesome. In Mr. Birnbaum's book he doesn't help with debugging at all. So if there's a mistake you have no idea how to fix it.
