You can really get your groove on by using both building blocks and macros…together to make a smashing combination.…This really shifts you into second gear by speeding up your output, and…gives you the power of both building blocks and macros all in one powerful little package.…Let's say we receive a weekly report.…We find ourselves re-doing the same repetitive steps over and over again.…So instead, let's record a macro to save ourselves a huge amount of time.…
Let's start recording.…Let's go down to the Record Macro button in your Status Bar and click and…we'll give it a name.…Since this is our weekly report, let's call it WeeklyReport.…We're going to assign this to a keyboard shortcut, RW for Weekly Report.…So click on keyboard, it has a little icon of a keyboard on it, and we're going…to assign it a new shortcut key F+Alt+R, W. It's still unassigned, so make sure…down at the bottom-left you click on Assign.…
Then click on Close, and we'll start recording.…The first thing that we want to do is we want to get rid of WebPage here.…
