Chapter 39. Introducing Visual Basic for... > Communicating with a User

Communicating with a User

You may be thinking to yourself, "This macro doesn't seem very useful. I could have done it faster with a copy and paste." Well, you are probably right. The main point of the macro you created was to get you familiar with reading a Visual Basic for Application procedure. The other reason this particular example is used is to create a foundation to build on with additional Visual Basic for Application code.

When developing in Visual Basic, you typically record as much as you can and then add to it the additional features you cannot record. In a Visual Basic procedure, you are not limited to the simple playback of keystrokes. You can also, for example, communicate with users and prompt them for additional information so that you can customize the macro results.
