Excel Step-by-step Masterclass: Create Excel VBA apps with MySQL & Virtual Forms & Excel VBA

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

BUT, Microsft 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 tuff 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 createreadupdate and delete records that are stored in databases like MySQLMSSQLAccess (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).

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.

If you ever get stuck with something in the course, (like Excel VBA code or MySQL databases) just post a message in the Q&A of this course and I will respond as soon as I can to help you out. I do everything I can to make this a 5-star course and I hope you like it too and leave a review.
