Step-by-step Masterclass: Create quickly Excel VBA desktop apps using MySQL & Virtual Forms & VBA Excel 2010, 2013, 2016


Microsoft Excel  &  Microsoft Power BI  are the most popular and used tools for analyzing and visualizing data.

BUT , Microsoft Excel is not created for gathering data, especially in gathering relational data like  master-detail structures .

One basic, simple Excel example. You want to gather (or track) Orders in Excel and then for this Orders you want to track Order Details and, for example, Order Payments and all that using Excel.

Not to mention, to do this in a  multi-user environment also in Excel

Boy,….., You will have a tough time to do this with Excel , because Excel is simply not created for challenges like this, to gather master-detail data and also in a multi-user environment within the normal Excel environment.

But in this course “ Create Excel VBA apps using MySQL database & Virtual Forms “,  You will learn  how you can do this by  using Excel VBA  as a front end and  MySQL database  as a backend, whether the MySQL database is on your local machine, your local network, or on the web server. We will do this with help of a small tool called  Virtual Forms .


I’m Davor Geci the CEO and the Lead Developer of WinPIS, the company that’s behind a popular tool that brings to Excel what Access developers are having for decades.

It is the ability to  create CRUD Forms in Excel , forms to  create read update  and  delete records  that are stored in databases like  MySQL MSSQL Access  (On-premise or on the web) and use the data within Excel VBA and all that  in minutes .

It is similar to what Access can do, but you could also port this Virtual forms  from Excel VBA to Visual Studio 2017 (C# or VB.NET), Python,... .

You can not do this with Access VBA or natively with Excel VBA !

So, you just need to create a database and tell the Designer which fields you want on your form that is opened from Excel VBA code.

Once created Virtual Forms can be also used as  LookUp forms in Excel VBA  with no extra work, just as you would do  VLOOKUP  an  HLOOKUP  in Excel functions & formulas.

All the controls that are generated on this Virtual forms can be accessed with Excel  VBA  (or if you use Visual Studio 2017 with   C#  or  VB.NET ).

Virtual form control also fires events, so it allows us to interact with it, in a similar way normal  UserForms in Excel VBA  do. But in a more data-centric way.

Before you dive in, it’s probably a good idea to just check out the structure of the course “Create Excel VBA apps using MySQL database & Virtual Forms”.

In this course,  You will learn how to quickly create database applications using Microsoft Excel VBA and a MySQL database  that is hosted somewhere on the internet or in your building (so-called on-premise) and all that with help of the Excel VBA & a small tool called Virtual Forms.

In the first part of this course , You will learn how to  create your first database app  that will use  Excel VBA  as a front end, and a  MySQL database  as the back end. You will also learn how to install a MySQL server on your machine or anywhere in your network and use it as a data source. Also, in the first part of the course, you will learn how to install and use MySQL Workbench that help us to create and maintain MySQL databases.

Don’t worry, I will go slow!

Not only you will learn how to create your  Excel Virtual Forms  and write a few lines of Excel  VBA  code to master them,

you will also learn how you can make money with your Excel apps  by leveraging an affiliate program from a 3rd party web hosting company where you will host MySQL database.

And then, you will also  learn how to transform your Excel VBA  database applications with MySQL database as the datasource  to C# or VB.NET  with almost no change to the Excel VBA code.

We will also create Excel apps with other datasources, like Microsoft Access database and Microsoft Excel Workbook.

So, enroll now, try it out, learn new things in  Excel VBA  and  MySQL , have fun with me and create your  Microsoft Excel VBA apps in minutes.
