Excel macros provide a way to automate tasks in spreadsheets. The use of macros can save time and increase the accuracy with which repetitive actions are performed.
Three highly practical case studies steer this webinar from your very first macro to more practical macros which are both useful in themselves and a foundation of principles for you to extend to your own code.
This session is not aimed at developers! It will suit reasonably experienced Excel users with an appetite to get started with macros.
The session will include:
Please note that the demonstration will be given using Excel 2010. However, the version of Excel used in the webinar itself is of very limited importance as the points made extend to all versions.
Attendees will learn how to write, locate, edit and run a very simple macro. They will also learn two key principles (references and variables) which can be applied to the creation of their own more complex macros. Debugging will be briefly covered.
Anyone who has mastered the basics of Excel and wants to begin writing macros. Attendees should already understand the difference between absolute and relative references and be familiar with how to name ranges in spreadsheets. This session is not intended for specialist code developers.
