I am an accountant by trade and want to expand my capability in reporting. The two tools most relevant to my goals are Crystal reports and Excel VBA.

Does anyone have any tips on how to master the formula language used by these tools? I know it's "Basic" language but I am wondering if anyone can suggest some good learning resources.

As it is right now I can create formulas but I am having to refer to the tutorials way too much. It would be nice to grasp the basic concepts so I could become more efficient.

BTW- I know I could take a course offered by SAP or some other professional training organization BUT I learn better from books and they tend to be less costly.
