Master Excel Macros


One Day Workshop

Excel Macros can be used to automate a complicated series of actions or record commonly used commands.

Simple, powerful, and easy to customize, Excel macros can save you time and increase your productivity. Macros called loops are especially useful for working with ranges of data. Whether you've only heard about macros or already used them in Excel, now's the time to find out more about them.

What are Macros? Where are they kept? Why should I care? Very good questions. Macros in Excel are bits of code stored in the workbook that can automate repetitive tasks and quickly get your data in order. They make life easier, and that's why you should care.
