Where to Focus..

    I hope that I am posting in the right place..

    I was told by a smaller prop shop to spend some time learning excel & vba inside and out and then get back in touch with them. I am wondering what types of processes the firm might rely on excel and vba for, and what specific skills I should therefore focus on learning. Any input is appreciated.

    Again, sorry if I've posted in the wrong spot! :)

    open excel. write a vba function. call them back and tell them you know it. see what happens.

    This tells me that they have a ton of time and money invested in tools that they've developed for in-house analysis and they have no intention to use anything else.
  4. Why are you spreading misinformation?

  5. RDBMS's.

    My reason for suggesting this is that the elements involved come down to 56 elements, only. But, just consider this briefly. It either sticks or passes a person by.

    The firm, for other reasons, was misdirecting you as rosy pointed out, humorously.

    what's your suggestion? maybe ask for a spec?
