extract data from excel into vb

Hi,
Can anyone of you experts show me example of coding that extract data in the excel into vb?

I have this excel file that contain few columns (assume to be 3 columns) and rows (assume 10 rows)
I want to extract data in the SECOND column but start at Third row and put the data into a formula that i already write the code in vb. The process repeat for the next row with the same column until it reach the last row ( 10th row). When it reach there, a msgbox will popup.
Also when all this finish, the excel file will close itself and save itself into hard disk (if file already exist, overwrite it).

i think this is simple to you guys. i'm very new to vb (actually never use or learn vb before). So need your help very much. Sound desperate huh!? :)
