Chapter 33. Using VBA in Outlook 2003 > Creating Custom Toolbar Buttons

Creating Custom Toolbar Buttons

Now that you know how to create VBA code to work with Outlook, you're probably wondering whether you have to enter the VBA editor every time you want to run this code. The answer is no. There are two main ways you can run a VBA procedure from Outlook without entering the VBA editor. You can call a macro directly from the Macros menu, or you can create a custom toolbar button to accomplish the same task.

NOTE

Other Office products, such as Word and Excel, have the capability to record macros. All a user has to do is start recording, and then go through the steps she wants to record and stop recording. When the user is done, she has the macro built, complete with code that can then be modified for further tweaking. Outlook does not have this feature. A macro in Outlook is really just a code procedure you must write yourself.
