    Hi, I'm having to write up the testing bit of my coursework; could someone explain the difference between unit testing, module testing and system testing for me?

    Also I need to know the differences between normal, extreme and erroneous testing. If anyone could help, I'd be really grateful.

    Thanks

    For the second bit, normal is data that would be valid (ie for age it would be 17), extreme is data at the edges of valid but still valid (ie 0 or 116)
    and erroneus is data that is not valid (ie seventeen if the validation is in number format)

    unit testing - testing each cell.
    module testing - testing macros etc.
    system testing - the overall composotion?

    All a guess.. why are you doing that anyway? I didn't bother with silly stuff like that last year and got 110/120.

    I don't know what the task is but I can do Vlookups with my eyes closed - if you explain the problem (in as much detail as possible) I'll try to help
