An Introduction to EXCEL for Civil Engineers From engineering theory to Excel practice Gunthar Pangaribuan

Microsoft Excel learning is perceived as more attractive from time to time and it is
probably the most widely software‐learning topic written into books, websites, courses,
tutorial videos, groups, etc. Favored by many people because Excel is relatively easy to
operate and giving “completely” results by showing spreadsheet form (rows and columns),
images, text, tables, charts, and so on. Talking about Excel for applied engineering
calculation cannot be separated from the discussion on Visual Basic for Application (VBA)
macro, which is the programming language of Microsoft Visual Basic for the automation of
certain tasks. This is due to macro like any other programming language capable of doing
iterative calculation or repeating the calculation process with ease. There is a unique
combination between worksheet as user‐interface and VBA, which turned out to be a lot
makes it easy for users to create a program.
This book also discussed the depiction in AutoCAD software. Why? Because the drawing
creation process can be done through Excel formulas or macros, and this will enhance a
series of producing program. The advantage of an AutoCAD drawing creation is no doubt
that relies on high image accuracy with a myriad of features it will certainly be a challenge
to create drawings. With the ease of working with Excel, coupled with a lot of given
examples in this book, it is expected to increase the interest of the reader to create new
original application programs. Thus, each model or even a specific model of calculation will
be an exciting challenge for a programming job is already enjoyable.
