Features: VBA best practice and no compromise on quality

Are you skilled in VBA programming and would like to know if we are the perfect match for your project? Or perhaps you're curious about what sets us apart from the competition. This section is designed for you, as we highlight the principles and strategies we adhere to when developing VBA code. A quick note: The difference between good and clean code, compared to low quality can be huge – even if both seem to produce the same results at first glance. We promise: We’ll try not to get too technical.

  • As simple as possible: Even when dealing with complex solutions, we will always strive to keep the code as simple as possible (but never too simple!), without compromising functionality and reliability.
  • DRY (don’t repeat yourself): The code will always be logically structured in modules, subroutines and functions. All subs that are called directly by the user (from the worksheets interface) are in a single place, so you can easily navigate yourself down into the code. Steps that are logically connected are transferred into their own subroutines and functions. The same is true for functions and subs of general kind. This way, we not just keep it clean, but also easily maintainable and avoid repeating code.
  • Descriptive names for variables, subroutines and functions: While we of course use comments extensively, we make sure all subroutines and functions have names that clearly describe their purpose. The same is true for variables. Speaking of variables, we follow clear guidelines for naming, including the variables scope and datatype (following the Hungarian notation).
  • Comments: Following up the last point, the code will be comment rich, explaining what happens at each point. Each subroutine and function will of course also have an introductory comment, giving you some information on what the procedure does, the purpose of its input parameters, as well as the output parameter (in case of functions).
  • Robust error handling: Unhandled errors can crash your application, lead to unexpected results, infinite loop and other undesired outcomes. We implement robust error handling to prevent crashes, unexpected results, and other undesirable outcomes.
  • Speed: In VBA, there are many important concepts to increase speed: We will do what is possible to reduce “hits” against the worksheet which are extremely time consuming. Whenever possible, we will load data to (much faster) arrays or dictionaries before treating it. Variables get the right data types and scopes, loops will be optimized to keep them fast, use inbuilt Excel/VBA functions when they are faster than VBA and we apply “With”-statements wherever reasonable to name just a few (we have a long list of practices we adhere to!). And of course, the obvious: Turn off calculations, screen updating and page breaks while the code executes.
  • Scalability: We are very aware of keeping our code scalable, so it can grow or be adaptable to growth and changes in your business.

When you partner with us for your VBA and Excel projects, you can say good bye to technical debt. Our goal is to constantly provide high quality solutions that adhere to best practices, speed and robustness. Contact us today to discuss your project.
