Macros: The Basics

A macro is a sequence of operations that Word can execute whenever you tell it to, with a keyboard shortcut, toolbar button, menu command, or by executing the macro from the Tools, Macro, Macros dialog box. Word's powerful macro facilities enable you to automate just about anything you would do manually in Word. There are two general approaches to creating Word macros:

  • Use Word's macro recorder to capture the steps in your macro as you perform them. After you save the macro, you can play it back at any time using one of the options listed previously.

  • Write the code of the macro in the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming language. Word comes with a complete programming environment, the Visual Basic Editor, which you use to enter and edit your code, as well as powerful tools to help you test your macros.
