Dear experts,

Can some one explain me the appropriate spproach of the following:

If one was to look for a profile in programe ( as a starter for a low profile programing job) and he start learning from scratch.

Is it advisable to learn vba and then .net (dot net) or is it advisable to learn .net and then vba.
Assume there we have 5 months fo time dedicated for this. Also mention whether these are interchangeable skills or these totoally very different.

Kindly advice.

I will advise to learn .NET first. Because it's far more complex. The code is more strict, and you will not lear things wrong.
You may learn stuff wrong if you start with VBA, because BVA is a version og the old Visual Basic (like ASP). And there are lots off stuff you don't have to concider because the code is not as strict, and the data types are more vague.

If you learn (I mean study) .NET first, you will be learning it correct, and it's easier to learn VBA later.
It take far more time and effort, but that's anyway my opinion. I bet there may be people that disagree :-)

You will be a better chef if you start by study all food, instead of focusing on what to do with strawberries :-)
