    Aha motivations for stdVBA which is a library I made. It resolves some of these points in some ways. E.G. stdLambda acts as a Lambda syntax for VBA. stdCallback allows you to ripe the benefits of first class functions, without those functions existing.

    As you can see sometimes these techniques can get rather complicated, however in reality most of the complexities of this task can be hidden behind an abstraction. This is where I suggest the use of the stdVBA library. This library (created by myself) contains some simple abstractions of the IAccessible API and work in conjunction with stdLambda to help you create small utilities like the above, with very little effort:

    Uses stdVBA's stdAcc library, but works a charm! :D
  • Using Mail Merge and VBA to create a merge that pulls from multiple rows that have a matching cell
    1 project | | 7 Apr 2022
    You'd need to download stdLambda, stdEnumerator and stdICallable and import these into your VBA library in order to work with them.

    There're numerous unit testors out there already. I do find it interesting as to why many prefer this result.equalTo(3) compared to result = 3. My own is a single class and goes down the Test.Assert message, x=y route. As a result most of my tests look like:

    At that point, I decided to try the fabulous stdLambda tool, developed by u/sancarn. I found that stdLambda correctly evaluated all the corner cases that made Volpi's class fail. This fact excited me, so I decided to measure the time it took to evaluate an expression with variables, noticing that the u/sancarn library was quite efficient. At that point, I started to measure the performance by evaluating functions like sin, cos, tan, abs, the results seemed strange to me when I noticed that the performance was almost 50 times lower when compared to the results obtained when measuring the performance by evaluating expressions without calls to built-in functions.

  • Looking for automated solution to import, format and email the formatted data

    Use VBA, with the CSV Interface library you can do that by fields rearranging.
  • [VBA] CSV data processing made easy
    1 project | | 7 Aug 2022
    With CSV Interface users get a powerful VBA tool to manage CSV files and data arrays, to convert between different file types (TSV, DSV)... and a long list of options - CSV files are no longer a headache for Office and VBA lovers!
  • CSV data processing made easy

    To highlight the new features of CSV Interface, code will be shown that allows the solution of some publications made in this community where it was requested to manage, modify, organize information and translate the result into spreadsheets, text files or data arrays.
  • VBA - Filtering Arrays
    1 project | | 3 Jul 2022
    This is a great use case of VBA CSV Interface and its Filter method from the CSVArrayList class module.
  • Converting xlxs to csv without losing zeros

    Use VBA CSV interface, with it you can export worksheet data to CSV without any further data transformation.
  • Performing complex CSV data wrangling tasks with ease

    Compute 3P%. The first stage of our solution will be completed using the File System Object (FSO), so that we can indicate the path to the folder containing the data we wish to analyze. The desired goal can be achieved with very simple code. To complete the second stage, we will need to use a library that allows us to import, filter and handle results from different queries on CSV files; we will use for this purpose the CSV Interface library. Finally, we must compute the effectiveness of three-point shots made by LeBron James. It is clear that the task described is far from simple, but we will show that it can be achieved with readable, concise and extensible VBA code.

    After this publication, which details the reason why VBA Expressions turned out to be the most feasible option to solve the problem of integrating an expression evaluator with CSV Interface, it is time to address the process of integrating the evaluation capabilities and the ease with which this goal was achieved.

    Maybe CSV Interface can help you. With this library you can read and import files in chunks (reducing memory usage). As well you can import one record at a time and perform your logic in order to determine which ones you want to append to memory.
  • Evaluating expressions from strings in VBA
    4 projects | | 20 Feb 2022
    In spite of what I discovered, I was convinced that I could incorporate the referred library to CSV Interface, so I dedicated myself to study the methodology with which variables are handled in stdLambda. I found it difficult to understand why the variables must be passed in terms of a pre-established order ($1 refers to the first value passed as parameter of the evaluate function, $4 the fourth... and so on). Thus, the user is forced to write the expressions taking into account the order in which the values will be passed.
