If In simple terms, a project called the file of any Office application and all related elements of vba, including macros and custom forms. Visual Basic Editor, you can open by pressing the keys 'Alt + F11'. With this combination You can also switch between the editor and the application of which it was called. One hundred to do something in the editor, Visual Basic, first, as a rule, you need to open a module – an element of vba, which contains one or more macros. To open a module, follow these steps: 1.
