How To Enable Macros Office 2010
A macro, or command in Office 2010, makes it possible to execute several steps automatically with a single action. These helpful tools can save you time when editing documents and will become an invaluable part of your workday, especially if you have repetitive tasks that need to be done over and over again on multiple files. There are two ways to enable macros in Office 2010: one that’s quick and temporary, and one that’s permanent. In this tutorial, we’ll go over both methods so you can learn how to enable macros in Word when you need them most!
Click on Tools, then click on Macros to access Visual Basic Editor. Go to Insert and click on Module. Create a new macro by typing your macro name. For example, if you want a macro named Print Hello World, type Sub Print Hello World in Module1 as shown below: Type Msg Box(Hello World!) on line 1 and End Sub on line 2 as shown below: Type Exit Sub or End Sub when you need to end a subroutine or return back to Word once your macro is done running Google.
When you have your macro recorded and ready to go, stop recording. Macros in Word are also known as AutoText entries; In order to enable macros within Word documents, open up Options from Word’s Tools menu. Under Popular on the left-hand menu, look for AutoCorrect Options and select it. On that page, check Enable automatic spelling and grammar check under General, then uncheck Correct TWo INitial CApitals. You’ll be prompted with another warning about disabling autocorrect; click Yes or No depending on your preference.
How To Enable Macros In Excel 2010:
To run a macro, you need to enable macros in Word. In Word, go to Tools > Options. Click Trust Center and then click Trust Center Settings. Under Macro Settings select Enable all macros (not recommended; potentially dangerous code can run). Then click OK to close the dialog box. Now when you open a document containing macros, Word will automatically enable macros for that document only, so it’s not risky to do so. But bear in mind that enabling all macros is not recommended because it opens you up to potentially harmful macro viruses and attacks. If a document contains malicious code or a virus and if you open it without disabling Word’s macro security settings first, your computer may become infected with malware that steals your personal information or causes other problems.
To edit a recorded macro in Microsoft Office 2010, open Word and click on Office at the top of your screen. Once you click on Office, a drop-down menu will appear with different options. Click on Word Options. Once you are in Word Options, select Recorded Macros and then click on View Recorded Macros. Your recorded macros will appear; find one that you would like to edit and double-click it. A new window will pop up for you to work in; change any information that needs changing by clicking inside of each box at every step of your macro or adding steps if needed.
View The Visual Basic Editor:
The Visual Basic Editor is like a word processor specifically designed for writing macros and other VBA code. And since you can use VBE to write macros, it’s easy to find your way around. But if you don’t know where to start (or aren’t sure how it works), here’s a quick overview of what you need to know about using VBE. Keep in mind that, depending on which version of Office you have, things may look slightly different than what we describe below.
The Visual Basic Editor (VBE) has a menu option to run macros. To use it, click on Tools, click on Macros, and then choose either Edit a macro or Create a new macro. To edit an existing macro, double-click on its name in either list. If you want to create a new macro from scratch, click New under Macros in Tools. Once you’ve chosen your desired menu option, your screen will look something like Figure 8.1 . If you don’t see VBE at all, go to Start>All Programs>Microsoft Office>Office , and then click Microsoft Office Excel Options. Click Popular and enable Show Developer tab in Ribbon checkbox as illustrated below.
