It is possible to reuse the old BASIC program via Excel. It seems that none can use VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) of Excel skillfully, when he/she is not versed in the Visual Basic grammar. However, the old classical BASIC grammar is very available in VBA of Excel. It is possible to teach ingenuity in the BASIC programming in which the creative idea in the debug and error countermeasure is cultivated. Within a given function in IT (information technology), the creative idea cannot be cultivated in a mere computing process.
Keywords: Reuse of BASIC Program, Classical BASIC Grammar in Excel/VBA, Ingenious Education on Programming
