Turbocharge Your Spreadsheets with Excel Macros

In this post our VBA for Excel trainer Mark explains how using macros is like turbocharging your car. It also helps eliminate human error!

If Rolls Royce says it’s “Ok to turbo”, then it’s “Ok to turbo”…

There was a time (for those of us old enough to remember) when a new word hit the motorcar market: “Turbo”. Some of us know it’s slang for “turbine” referring to the part that forces air into the engine rather than merely allowing air to be sucked into the engine resulting in a serious increase in engine speed and power.

For the boy (and girl) racers, they thought they’d died and gone to heaven, for manufacturers pushing an engine to the limits of it’s endurance sometimes resulted in lots of smoke pouring from under the bonnet, combined with the dashboard lit up like a Christmas tree.
