Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating macros, part of Office 365: Access Essential Training.
- Macro objects allow you to create a series…of actions that you would like to automate.…When the macro is triggered, Access runs through the steps…and performs the tasks for you.…There's lots of uses for macros in your access database,…and to get started, we're going to set one up…that opens several objects for us…without having to go to the navigation pane.…This is going to be my I just got to work macro,…and it allows us to quickly pull up the reports…and forms that we need to start the day.…In order to create a new macro,…we'll come up here to the create tab,…and then over on the far right hand side…in the macros and code group,…you'll find a button called macro.…
When you click on it, it opens up a new macro…and the design editor for it.…Here in the middle portion of the screen,…you have a drop down list, and when we open that up,…you'll see all the different steps…that we can include in our macro.…This macro is going to open up a couple of items,…so I'm going to scroll through…until I get to the open section.…
