If you find that you perform certain tasks repeatedly, you might be able to simplify your life by creating Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macros. Properly used, VBA macros can perform some of your work for you. Many people find themselves cringing at the mere mention of the word macros, but there’s really no reason to be intimidated. Simply put, a macro is a series of commands and instructions that are grouped together as a single command. For example, you can record a macro that creates a particularly formatted table and assign the macro to a toolbar button. Then, the next time you want to create a table with the same formatting, you simply click the toolbar button—nothing magical about it, but certainly a welcome convenience!
