IndiVocab: Free Vocab Software developed in Excel VBA. [#permalink] New post 25 Jul 2010, 23:06
Hi Everyone,

Background:
I am studying for GMAT. Was searching for a user friendly software for Vocab Building, which user can modify according to the need. The closest I got was Crammer, must say a good one but did not get the facility to have word with sentence. So started developing one and here is the result of that :idea: 'IndiVocab' .
( This is 'e'specially useful for the people who always work on the computer, may be in office.)

Its a VB based thing with the data in Excel. The code is open , if someone wants he/she can modify it or just by changing the database in Excel file one can change the wordlist.

Features:

1. You can have GMAT wordlist, or high frequency word list.
2. You can choose Number of words per hour and the delay time. e.g 7 word/hr with 30 sec delay will result in scrolling of these 7 words with a delay of 30 sec in a loop and as the hour in your computer changes the next 7 word will scroll in loop.
3. Same way for idioms.
4. 1 hour test, so you can test the words you learned in last hour.
5. Same way 1 day test.
6. Transparency, this i guess is the best feature, when you are working on ur office PC. :twisted:


I struggled for such software, so thought of developing and sharing it with You guys.

This is in initial phase of development, so there could be few 'Bugs' and vast scope for improvement. Pls check it and let me know your experience.

( I have updated the file as pointed by kissthegmat. Thanks
In Genaral The issue is: If your macro setting is high, this VBA wont work, So make it low for this VBA to work)
Thanks
Haresh

kissthegmat:

You were correct...the notice was missing from the uploaded file; I have corrected it and re-uploaded it.
You can download this one.

(The problem is with Macro settings you can lower it and then open it again. You should able to see the window as shown in the image, in original post.)

Thanks

hi,

You can change macro security settings in the Trust Center, unless a system administrator in your organization has changed the default settings to prevent you from changing the settings.

1. On the Developer tab, in the Code group, click Macro Security.

Tip If the Developer tab is not displayed, click the Microsoft Office Button Button image, click Excel Options, and then in the Popular category, under Top options for working with Excel, click Show Developer tab in the Ribbon.

2. In the Macro Settings category, under Macro Settings, click the option that you want.


( If you cant see developer tab in excel, then you will have to change it from main options, and make developer options visible, then follow the above settings.)

( This is from Microsoft site, Actually i dont have 2007 so could not check this.)

Hope this works. Let me know if you face any problems.

Thanks
