Microsoft Excel: Macros and Introduction to VBA
Macros allow everyday repetitive Excel tasks and actions to be automated. Macros record all the keyboard strokes of an action and then repeat them when required, thus saving time and reducing errors. Macros are not difficult to create and with a little knowledge of VBA, minor changes can be made to them.
Macros can be used to:
- format data
- set up worksheets and reports
- analyse data
- create invoices
- update records
- insert text that is repeated often
- repeat common actions in several worksheets
The workshop will focus on making practical, useful macros. There will also be an overview of the VBA code and how to make some minor adjustments to it; however, this is not a programming workshop.
Macros are stored as VBA which is Microsoft’s programming language. A very basic understanding of VBA allows you to make minor adjustments to the macros.
This is an intermediate level course and while no knowledge of macros is required, attendees should be reasonably confident users of Excel spreadsheets.
