Some of these applications make use of Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), a versatile computer language that further expands the functionality of spreadsheets. The material included in this e-book should inspire readers to devise their own applications and enhance their teaching and/or learning experience.Conditional theskilllevelataglance. diagram.Anetworkdiagramisaschematic of, projectactivities. ... incorporated to enhance the visuals of 7.2.5 Project Network Diagram A useful tool in project management is the network display of the logical relationships ... of the 17 activities are shown in the activity network Each activity occupies a cell; the arrows are drawing between activities (without any internal logic).
