- [Chris] Did you know that you can automate almost any repetitive process in Excel? You can use what's called the Macro Recorder, which lets you record your steps and creates a reusable procedure that you can run over and over again, and you don't have to have any computer programming experience. Here's a quick macro that filters data in a worksheet, copies it to a new workbook, and attaches it to an Outlook email. All right, that might not seem like much, but imagine if you had to do this with multiple people and workbooks every week. It can get incredibly time consuming, let alone boring. Over the years, I have created macros that have saved thousands of hours, and you can too once you get comfortable with them.
My name is Chris Smitty Smith, and I work for Microsoft creating help content for Excel. In my LinkedIn Learning course on Excel macros and VBA for beginners, I'll show you how to get started.
