.NET language Walkthrough (training) for MS Office 2013
 
Does anyone have good suggested sites or training for converting VBA into .NET - with an empasis on MS Office (Excel as the primary target)?

MS Office (including Access) uses VBA.
For Office Automation, the VBA in MS Access for example can be used to create a highly custom Excel workbook, worksheet completely from code.

My plan is to set up a self-training plan for learning VB.Net specifically to automate Excel. Thought I would share a few sites.

If anyone has other suggestions, including paid software, to accomplish this, please contribute ideas.

Versions:
The older .net / office had different libraries. Take the older versions into context that some of the changes from older .net / office versions may not work as they use to.
