Excel Functions

Part 1. Introduction 2

An Excel function is a formula or a procedure that is performed in the Visual Basic environment, outside the Excel spreadsheet. 3

For example, the sum of two variables can be evaluated in an Excel spreadsheet as follows: 4

Sumx + y x =5 Y =3 Sum =8 5 Sum of two variables in an Excel spreadsheet

This same sum can be done in the environment of Visual Basic (VB) 6

You can define a function called "Sum", which receives the value of two inputs "x" and "y" and returns the value of the sum of them 7

How to build the function "Sum" 8

- Click on the "Programmer" tab 9

10 If the tab is not available, see Note 1 "Activate tab" at the end of the document.

- Click on the "Programmer" tab 11

Click on "view code" 12

The "Visual Basic" ambient is open 13

Function code 14

Function code 15 The codes are written in the VB "Modules"

Function code 16 The codes are written in the VB "Modules" To open a module

Function code 17 The codes are written in the VB "Modules" To open a module Click right button on the left side window

Function code 18 The codes are written in the VB "Modules" To open a module Click right button on the left side window It opens a window

19 Select Insert

Click Module 20

Appears the new created VB module, with the name Module1. 21 This name can be changed later by a more suitable one.

The right window displays a flashing line 22

The right window displays a flashing line 23 The module is now ready for use

Sum Function Code 24

Código de la función Suma 25 In the right window type the function name followed by the dependent variables.

Código de la función Suma 26 In the right window type the function name followed by the dependent variables Function Suma(x,y)

Código de la función Suma 27 In the right window type the function name followed by the dependent variables. Function Suma(x,y) When you "Enter", VB automatically puts the final line of the function.

Sum Function Code 28 In the right window type the function name followed by the dependent variables. Function Suma(x,y) End Function

The new code must be written between these two commands. 29

The new code must be written between these two commands. 30 In this case, the code consists of a single line

The new code must be written between these two commands. 31 In this case, the code consists of a single line Suma = x + y

32 The complete function looks like

x =5 Y =3 Sum = =SUMA(C5,C6) Sum =8 33 Application of the Sum function in the Excel spreadsheet

End of Part 1. Introduction 34
