Utilizing Macros in Microsoft® Excel®
|Date / Time:
When you find yourself repeating actions in Excel - whether it's a five-step sequence you use when formatting a certain cell type or the 30 steps you use when you sort, filter, and print multiple worksheets once a week, the possibility exists that you can automate these actions in the form of a macro.
Thereafter, you can perform these sets of actions with a simple keystroke combination, a button in a worksheet, or by using a button in the Quick Access toolbar.
This topic shows you how to create these macro shortcuts, alerts you to situations ideal for creating macros, and explores the actual code (in the language called Visual Basic) created when you record command sequences. This is not a course in Visual Basic, but you will get a quick look at it and understand its role in creating and using macros.
Creating a macro may ultimately involve programming techniques but most macros are developed by recording the way you use standard Excel® commands. This topic will show you how to create macros and give you examples of various macros that handle large amounts of information and interact with multiple files. You will also see how to activate a macro with commands, buttons, keystrokes, or pictures.
This webinar will utilize GoToWebinar, an internet active tool which allows the speaker to walk through examples in real time. This will be the best way to follow along with the program and a link will be provided for you prior to the program date.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
