WHAT IS A MACRO?

by guy In reply to WHAT IS A MACRO?

Macros are really no more than recordings of all the instruction that you could do manually. E.g. File New. Type in Address and Phone number, put in today's date, GOTO Dear Sir. Those are the instructions, they are recorded, then you replay them with one command like ALT SHIFT L.
That would be a simple MACRO. The skill is to use special instructions to develop program loops to repeat e.g. make one row, make another row, keep on until you have made 12 rows.
So langauages have been developede.g. Visual Basic to make macros more powerful.
To get started go to word, and record a macro, and replay it. At the other extreme, use built in macros.

A macro is a sequence of word actions that u can record or a write in a form of Visual Basic for application code. U can then run the macro to play back the action with one key. This is very good to use in word. The pictures (shortcuts)that you use on the toolbars in word are all macros, EX: printing, saving and closing etc.
