    Pros and cons of VBA for..

    Hi,

    I'm currently doing an assignment which involves pulling data threads from a source and displaying it such that a user can manipulate the data and use the data for trading decisions. it will be centred on Excel and there will be a platform created from there where we hope that the students who use the simulation would learn more about how FOREX trading works.

    So I was wondering what are the pros and cons of using VBA on this particular assignment. I want to lean more towards the pros as my team needs it more.

    VBA should be fine. It is easy to use, easy to learn, easy to deploy, and there is tons of help available on the net.

    Other technologies, .Net and so on, have serious drawbacks in a non-IT controlled domain.

    What other technologies besides .Net are available for such applications?

    Thanks.
