Streamline your workflows and cut time spent on document creation by taking advantage of building blocks and macros in Microsoft Word.

The course also explains how to record macros to capture the steps in your workflow and run them with a single click.

Hi! I am Mariann Siegart, and welcome to Building Blocks and Macros in Word. In this course, we will look at how you can use Building Blocks and Macros to streamline your workflows. I'll start by showing you how to set up, create, and save building blocks. Then, I will show you how to capture document formatting with macros to speed up repetitive tasks. We will work on several real world macro projects that use some of Word's advanced features such as combining the power of Building Blocks and Macros together, creating field codes and pop-up boxes that obtain information from the user, and even run macros automatically upon opening a document using auto-macros.
We will cover all of these features, plus plenty of other tools and techniques. Are you ready to get started with Building Blocks and Macros in Word? Let's go!
