If you’re an Excel super-user who has finally outgrown a few of those Excel built-in worksheet abilities, and you’re wishing that they could accomplish even more, consider hiring someone with the capabilities of an Excel programmer to take your spreadsheets to the next level! Just tell a programmer what worksheet functions and results that you want, and you’ll be able to sit back and relax as they do the rest of the work! They will take it from there. They will also create an Excel add-in that you can install in Excel, and that you can distribute to others if you want. You can even sell it! Worksheet Functions What if you, the client, was looking for a small-change to one of Excel’s built-in worksheet functions, and do not want to have to pay for the rewriting? That’s not a problem either! A good Excel programmer can write a function with only the new or changed functionality, and then call the built-in function from the new custom function. That way, you’ll only have to pay for the new or changed functionality which will save you quite a bit of money!
If you’re going to be doing your own VBA programming, but nevertheless want some functions written that you can call from your code, you can just tell a programmer what parameters that you want to pass to the function, and what result that you’d like for the function to return! You can leave the rest to the programmer. Afterwards, those functions can easily be copied and pasted in your VBA project. Alternatively, the programmer could put the functions on a DLL that you can call from VBA. If you’re already finished creating a macro that provides some performance gain, but you’d like more from it, an Excel programmer can make your macro more versatile, error-free, and convenient. New, better features can also be added Programmers can also help your macro run many times faster! Don’t be surprised if your macro’s speed is boosted by a factor of one hundred. Do you need faster, more efficient calculations in your spreadsheets? Perhaps you have workbooks that take hours, maybe even days, to calculate. If that’s the case, let a programmer demonstrate how much faster they calculate (once modified)! You only need to pay if you approve of the programmer’s work. If improvements are not fast enough to impress you, you aren’t obligated to buy at all. Programmers can automate nearly any task you think about whether hiring a programmer is right for you!
