Part VIII: Customizing Microsoft Project > Using Macros with Microsoft Project

Hour 23. Using Macros with Microsoft Project

Microsoft Project includes eleven built-in macros that are an extension of the core program. Most of the macros are already assigned to toolbar buttons to provide additional functionality in managing your project. You can also create your own macros for tasks you perform repeatedly, which is the main topic of this hour.

Macro A macro is an automated list of instructions you use to accomplish a specific task.

When you run a macro, it executes all the steps in its list, one after the other. The macro saves you from having to execute each of the commands manually and from having to remember the correct sequence of commands required. You can execute a macro from the Macro dialog box, from a toolbar button, or with a keystroke.

This hour discusses the basic steps in creating simple macros you can use in Microsoft Project. If you are interested in learning more about creating and editing macros, I strongly encourage you to refer to Special Edition Using Project 98, published by Que. This Special Edition book provides detailed information on using the Visual Basic Editor and Visual Basic for Applications to work with your macros.
