Full Biography

Well, I guess it's time to tell a little about me.

I live in the North of England and I am currently working for a large international umbrella corp in one of their sub companies. My knowledge of all things computer-like is mainly self-taught. I first started out working life as a Chef, and spent four years doing that. As you can imagine, I didn't come near a computer in that time, and any skill I did have soon dissapated in the face of the numbness of catering work.

Then, after finally getting fed up with the bad hours and pay, I decided to look for sales work. So I found a job with an independent tour-operator booking holidays for people. After doing that for a year, the person who did the pricing for the company's brochures was taken off work ill. So they came asking if anyone knew Excel and I said yes. When I got to look at the spreadsheets he was working with I realised how much I had forgotten (I had to use MS help to get info on IF functions), but managed to work my way through it. I used help many times to get the work done, but in the end I managed it, started refining it, and made some people happy with the changes. Because this other person was still off I managed to keep the job long enough to make it permanant, and my life as an analyst began.

In that work I did many Access/Excel combined solutions, which gradually build up my knowledge of both packages. Then I started getting an interest in VBA, and started playing more and more with that.

Now, 2 years later I find myself in a fairly good paying job, and loving it. I'm still playing with all sorts of code (well maybe "tinkering" would be a better way of putting it), but Excel/VBA is my main knowledge area, and I hope that I give some valuable help to people here.
