I’ve purchased some of your publications in the past (“Master-of-Macros-book”, “Pivot-Tables-VBA-Secrets”,”How-to-write-perfect-vlookup-im-formulas”, etc), and I am quite impressed with how you go about making difficult concepts very clear.

Dear John…

Really you are fascinating and have an explanation method that is highly attractive. Your approach impressed me because it hits the point directly…

Sometimes, thankful and gratitude words might not express the right thanks that should be extended to you. I have just finished reading your great book “How to Create Dynamic and Interactive Excel Dashboards.”

Your efforts and great help that you are presenting to Excel learners are unbelievable. I wish if I would be able to meet you face to face to thank you.

Very good beginning to understanding the logical flow of programming. This lesson has helped me greatly in understanding what I call the GrandParent.Parent.Child objects. How to take action on each one of them and in what order.

I have been “following” you for several years, and you produce lots of really good stuff for us Excel addicts

I do keep reading and enjoying your emails about Excel. They have proved helpful at work, I must admit.

Good luck and thanks again.


As a teacher I love your simple creative ways of explaining complex subjects, it was through your teaching I learned so much more and in turn shared with my students.

To this day I use your rules about designing a good table. I always enjoyed your teaching style and I am thrilled to know you have returned to Excel.


I like the way that you encourage us to make our work adaptive to change. In fact you have been a major influence in how I design my spreadsheets.

I used to force my users to work the way I wanted them to work, by making it difficult to work any other way. Now, I use more adaptive functions, macros and many more error traps when I make new spreadsheets and also when I modify the old ones.

Thanks a lot, John.


I love you John Franco. You make me a master at Excel!
