Welcome to The Spreadsheet Guru
Chris Newman aka Chris Macro aka TheSpreadhseetGuru joins us to discuss the creation of his blog. Chris runs TheSpreadsheetGuru
Chris gathered his skills in the workplace. During a rotational assignment he happened upon Excel and had to clean up spreadsheets and found that he had a gift for it. His fancy spreadsheet footwork garnered him the name Chris Macro by one of his bosses.
Learning Through Forums
Chris found some of earliest help through Forums. Particularly the Mr Excel forum. Chris taught himself VBA, which helped him stand out in the office. Since Chris was in a rotational assignment, he took his VBA skills with him in each role, which helped him become known as the :go to guy” for VBA and Macros.
