Can you reccomend me a good Excel 2007 Book?

Can you reccomend me a good Excel 2007 Book? I'm currently studying a foundation degree in Renwable Energy in the UK, and am struggling with Excel 2007. A general book would be handy, but the main topic I'm really struggling with is 'visual basic', so it would need to include detailed information on how to use that and the coding system of Excel. Can anyone reccomend a good book to get that would include information relative to that?

File Association Mess Office 2007

After buying Office 2007 (Standard) on my Vista system, I can no longer change file associations. I migrated from a mixture of Office 2000 Professional and Windows office XP. When I go to the file association dialog box, it recommends odd programs, and no Office 2007 options, hence nothing opens in the new format. It won't change even if I point to the correct .exe file in Office 12 folder. The menu doesn't even offer any Word 2007 options. HELP! Nothing on the web or on the Microdouche website. [more inside]
