Part VII: Advanced Topics > Automating Your Work with Macros

Chapter 22. Automating Your Work with Macros

by Brian Reilly

  • Write macros that automate tedious repetitive tasks

    The macro recorder can record your actions and play them back for you at the touch of a key, so you don't need to be nervous about writing code. It writes the code for you as you go.

  • Modify code written by the macro recorder to perform decision making for you

    As powerful as the macro recorder is, there are many things it just cannot or does not record.

  • Write advanced code that will let you perform some advanced operations with only a few lines of code

    Code shortcuts can accomplish tasks by looping back through the same instructions until finished.

  • Visualize the Object Model

    The Object Model is the hierarchy of the PowerPoint code. Every object has its place in the model and a relationship to other objects. The Object Model is the underlying structure of PowerPoint commands.
