Creating a Macro

When you record a macro, it's as though you've turned on a video camera that watches your keystrokes, mouse movements, and command selections—the macro recorder notes every move you make and converts your actions to programming code. After you name your macro and perform all the steps you want to automate, you stop the recorder, and by using the name you've given the macro, you can run it at any time. A macro enables you to perform a virtually unlimited series of steps in just seconds.

Note

In earlier versions of Office, the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint programs didn't have features such as AutoCorrect and AutoText. Before these features existed, users created macros to correct common misspellings and turn abbreviations into words, phrases, and paragraphs. As Office evolves, the number of common tasks you'll need to automate by yourself will continue to decrease.
