Quick Automation Using Excel Macros

Excel Macros do not require introduction. Think of any Excel process automation within a few days - the instant answer is Macros.

Macros automate common and repetitive tedious tasks. Macros are short programs written using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) for MS Office applications. VBA was first launched with MS Excel 5.0 in 1993. It became an instant success among developers to create corporate solutions using Excel.

We can use VBA macros to automate everything from simple tasks to complex reporting processes with multiple files. Here are the 5 main uses of macros

  1. Data Related Tasks: Data related tasks include everyday Excel tasks to cleanup and format data.
  2. Workbook Tasks: We can automate tasks across worksheets and workbooks. This includes things like listing all the sheets, creating a table of contents, hiding specific sheets, opening and closing workbooks, and more.
  3. Pivot Table Tasks: Pivot tables are an amazing tool in Excel. They can also be time consuming to create, format, update, and maintain. Fortunately, we can automate just about every property and action with pivot tables using VBA macros.
  4. Userforms & Add-ins: Userforms are windows that open over Excel with interactive controls. They make our spreadsheets easier for other users to use. The userforms can be created and modified in the VB Editor. Add-ins are installed on the users computer and usually contain custom ribbon tabs with buttons. This allows other users to run our macros on any open workbook.
  5. Process Automation: We can also automate more complex processes with macros & VBA. This includes creating systems to create, update, or modify several Excel files. We created many systems like this for forecasting and budgeting processes.
