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?

    Good-bye.

    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.
