Excel Automation: Automating Tasks with Macros
Duration: 60 minsDo you find yourself repeatedly performing the same actions or tasks in your spreadsheets? Do you have a time-consuming Excel-based process that you want to automate? Do you want to control how Excel acts when a file is opened, closed, saved or printed? If the answer to any of those questions is "Yes", it’s time to learn how to create a macro.
Macros free up much time by automating routine tasks in Excel. They allow you to store the sequence of actions it takes to complete tasks, and therefore shorten time spent on tedious commands by the click of a button! In this session, you will learn how to record & edit macros, create macros that can be re-used across multiple files, and create macros that run automatically based on an action, such as opening or closing a file.
Why you should attendBeing able to create and edit a macro is one of the must have skills for Excel users. Having this knowledge will save you hours of time by allowing you to automate any Excel-based task or process. No more wasting time on repetitive actions in Excel!
