Speed up your Excel workflow by recording macros that automate repetitive tasks. Learn how to begin working with macros—regardless of your level of technical expertise.
- [Chris] Did you know that you can automate almost any repetitive process in Excel? You can use what's called a 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 may 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. I've created macros that have saved thousands of hours, and you can too once you get comfortable with 'em. My name is Chris Smitty Smith, and I work for Microsoft creating help content for Excel. In my LinkedIn Learning course we'll expand on your current knowledge of Excel by introducing macros and VBA for those Excel users interested in learning about these time-saving tools. I'll show you how to get started.
