I’m excited to invite you to take the Business Applications with Excel and MySQL Database course.

If you’re skilled in Microsoft Excel you know you can achieve a lot. However, the problem is that Excel cannot handle large tables very efficiently, does not allow for multiple users to work concurrently, and poorly joins data from many tables to answer sophisticated business questions.

The bomb game-changer here is working with an external high-end database for storing, manipulating, and querying data.

This course will take your Microsoft Excel VBA skills to the next level by allowing you to discover the wonders of relational databases, design a proper schema for your business needs, develop and deliver highly scalable, performant, multi-user, professional applications.

You will discover:

  • Connecting Microsoft Excel to MySQL DB server
  • Installing the ODBC connector to MySQL server
  • Develop a rich library of generic, robust VBA functions for working with the MySQL DB Server: All CRUD operations and more.
  • Sanitize and adjust data as it travels between the MySQL DB Server and the Microsoft Excel environment
  • Develop a complete process of presenting a Microsoft Excel chart using SQL queries over MySQL DB tables
  • Assignment: Enrich your VBA to MySQL DB server functions library and develop a customers management system allowing adding, updating and deleting customers maintained in the DB Server from Microsoft Excel

What you will get when enrolling to this course:

  • 3 hours in 11 recorded, hands-on sessions

Each session was carefully planned, its code was written and verified and the video was edited to reflect a balanced blend of slides lecture with hands-on demo.

The course is structured to build a gradual learning curve. With each session you conquer another goal, expand your skills and experience.

  • 1 Quiz

The course closes with a quiz. The quiz is designed to measure your deep understanding of the material. Repeating a sentence you heard in the course is not enough to pass the quiz.

Only true understanding gained through practice leads to successful professionals – and that is what I aim for you!
