This book “I Wish I Knew How to … Program Excel with Xojo in Windows” goes into the numerous options of programming Excel.
This guide uses the power of Xojo in conjunction with the power of Excel. The question is frequently asked ‘why not just create the program in Excel?’
The answer is confidentiality, security, and automation. It is relatively common knowledge that program created in Excel are not secure and can be easily modified to view the original formulas for calculating results – no matter how much protection has been placed in the original program.

This book provides many object oriented programming examples and explains some of the terminology around programming such as polymorphism, introspection, extends, explicit unboxing, overriding, and other terms. To explain these terms more clearly, many coded examples have been given to show the logic and reasoning behind these terms.
