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 is the final part of 5 popular webinars in 2018 covering smart ways to efficiently use Microsoft Excel. This webinar will concentrate entirely on writing macros but it is not aimed at developers! It will suit reasonably experienced Excel users with an appetite to get started with or advance their macro skills.
The session will include:
The 5 webinars in the Write Better Excel series 2018 (in the order presented and the order of difficulty) will be as follows:
If you would like to view a recording from last year, before the 2018 live sessions run, you can find them in our On Demand section.
It is not required that attendees have attended webinars 1 -4 before joining this webinar, however, mastery of Excel basics will be assumed.
Please note that the demonstration will be given using Excel 2013. 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.
