Ok, the type of VB that is used in Office is VBA (Visual Basic for Applications). Similar in that it uses the BASIC structure of code (top to bottom read, until VB came out), but different in that it has a lot of different stuff you can do that pertains directly to the Office suite.

My advice to you:

There is a forum here for Excel VBA, however it looks all but dead (quiet). It can be located here:

Another option is http://www.tek-tips.com on their VBA forum (they have a very active VBA forum) for the information you are looking for. This seems to be your best bet, but I would try the local forum first just incase. Make sure to post the code that you are looking at ;)

As for the value of a cell, I believe it's Cell(#).Value . I'd have to look at the few VBA macros I've created to be sure.
