Macros are sets of commands written in Visual Basic for Applications code that can be recorded using the Developer tab in Word to help users automate repetitive tasks within a document. While macros can save time and increase productivity, they can be complex to create and edit. This training video gives an overview of what a macro is, how it is created, how it can be edited, and where ready-made macros can be downloaded with or without charge. It also discusses the security risks of using macros from third-party sources.
This course is enlightening for Word users, as it demonstrates how complex sets of actions in Word can be used to automate processes and interact with other Microsoft applications.
