You'll see how to use Excel’s Macro Recorder to write simple, yet effective, macros; how to secure and share macros with other Excel users; how to create user-defined functions to solve specific accountant-centric problems in Excel; and how to create macros that run automatically when a user opens a workbook. Next, see the basics of VBA, including necessary elements to write macros, to become effective and productive with Excel.
