Getting Started with Visual Basic Macros

One of the first things that macros were designed for was recording a sequence of keystrokes so that they can easily and accurately be replayed. One of the most useful display options in Project is the ability to zoom the display of the Gantt chart so that it shows the entire project. The command to do this is fairly well hidden in the View menu, and it takes a few clicks to get there. This section uses that as an example and defines some terms that you will need to understand later in the chapter.

Before you create a macro, you need to walk through the required actions to be recorded so that you can eliminate any false or unnecessary ones. On a simple macro like the one described in this section, this might not be necessary, but for macros that have many steps, it is very important. When recording a macro, you must do things by selecting them. Using shortcuts such as the Control key will not be recorded properly.
