Why Learning About Macros Is Important

Although macros shouldn't be used to develop the routines that control your applications, it's a good idea for you to have a general understanding of macros and how they work. In fact, one task—reassigning a keystroke—can be done only by using macros, so it's important to understand at least the basics of how macros work. Furthermore, using Access 97 macros can often help you get started with developing applications because these macros can be converted to VBA code. This means you can develop part of your application using macros, convert the macros to VBA code, and then continue developing your application. Although I don't recommend this approach for serious developers, it offers a great jump-start for those new to Access or Windows development in general.
