Do you find yourself doing the same actions over and over again in your spreadsheets? Did you know you can create macros so that Excel can do that repetitive work for you? Macros are sets of instructions based on actions that you record while you work in your spreadsheet. After you record a macro, you can use it again as the need arises.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Create a macro by using the Macro Recorder.

  • Run the macro that you recorded.

  • Make some minor changes to the macro by using the Visual Basic Editor in Excel.

  • Save the macro to your personal macro workbook and assign a button to it.
