My boss wants me to write the coding for a network graph animation (like the one seen here: ) using the excel program.   But I have only a very basic knowledge of excel and VBA, and in my search for a shortcut I stumbled upon this site.  I was wondering if it would be possible to use NodeXL to generate the coding for such a project.

No, not in any practical way.  The best you could do would be to use VBA to programmatically set the X and Y columns on the Vertices worksheet, manually click the Refresh Graph button, save the image, repeat, and stitch the resulting set of images together in another program.  I'm sure that's not what you had in mind.

Sorry about that!
