More about our Office Scripts training

Office Scripts offer a way to automate things that you do in Excel online.  The language used is a cut-down version of TypeSript, which itself is built upon JavaScript.

If you're familiar with the concept of VBA, you can think of Office Scripts as the online equivalent of this desktop programming language for Excel.

You can get to Office Scripts by clicking on the Automate tab of the Excel ribbon:

You can also write Office scripts in desktop Excel!

Just like for VBA, you can record actions in Office

Click on this button to record what youi're doing in script.

Here's what a simple script looks like:

If VBA married JavaScript, this language would be what their child might look like!

You can also call scripts from Power Automate flows:

One additional advantage of learning to write Office scripts is that it provides a gentle introduction to TypeScript, a derivative of JavaScript.

10 things our courses include

Each of our scheduled courses (whether classroom or online) includes:

  1. Small course sizes - we have a maximum of 6 people on each classroom or online course.
  2. A trainer! And not just anyone - our courses are only ever given by full-time Wise Owls.
  3. Full colour courseware and exercises of oustanding quality.
  4. A no cancellation guarantee (once you've booked and confirmed your training course, it will run).
  5. A one gigabyte USB stick, containing course files, answers to exercises and (by the end of the course) your answers too, together with a nice pen.
  6. Unofficial help after the course (although we don't have a dedicated post-course support line, in practice trainers will be happy to answer the odd ad hoc question after a course has taken place).
  7. A certificate sent out digitally or in paper form (your choice) after each course, together with (for tailored courses) the trainer's thoughts on how the course went.

In addition, our classroom courses also include:

  1. A computer for each delegate (obviously).
  2. Lunch out each day at a local restaurant (chosen on the day of the course, after discussion!).
  3. Unlimited refreshments during the day, including Tassimo or Nespresso coffee and a range of biscuits and snacks to keep you going through those dark afternoon hours.
