Macros for Excel and the rest of the office suite are based on Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) which is a subset of VB programming language.

If your not familier with this language then i would suggest "Googling" VBA Introduction or similar and have a look at some introductory info. If you are ok with VB then you can record doing a task you want to do and then look at the code generated to see what it has created.

Hi Team, I have created macro in MS Excel2007 and after executing macro output file will be created MS Excel2003. Once MS Excel2003 file closed and reopen all the formating lost. How can overcome this...


It is unlikely that you can really overcome this as Office 2003 and Office 2007 have completely different file formats and structures. But if you output it to an Office 2007 file and use the Microsoft converter for Office 2003 than it may work. The converter can be found here

Excel Macro-Enabled Workbook

Excel Macro-Enabled Template

.xltm

Can contain a VBAProject part or Excel 4.0 macro sheets (.xlm files in Excel 4.0). Workbooks created from this template inherit the VBAProject part or Excel 4.0 macro sheets that exist in the template.

Excel Add-In

.xlam

A supplemental program that runs additional code. Excel add-ins use the Open XML file format to store data, and they support using VBA projects and Excel 4.0 macro sheets.

Macro


Hi motilal

Follow these steps to create multiple macros

Click the Microsoft Office Button , and then click Excel Options.
In the Popular category, under Top options for working with Excel, select the Show Developer tab in the Ribbon check box, and then click OK.

Note The Ribbon is a component of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface.
To set the security level temporarily to enable all macros, do the following: On the Developer tab, in the Code group, click Macro Security.


In the Macros Settings category, under Macro Settings, click Enable all macros (not recommended, potentially dangerous code can run), and then click OK.

Note To help prevent potentially dangerous code from running, we recommend that you return to any of the settings that disable all macros after you finish working with macros.
Open the workbook that contains the module that you want to copy and the workbook that you want to copy the module to.
On the Developer tab, in the Code group, click Visual Basic.
On the View menu, click Project Explorer .
Drag the module that you want to copy to the destination workbook.

TheAssembler

Macro in excel


Open up your Excel and hit ALT + F11. This opens up the VBA editor.
You can then right click and click New Module and write your macro in there.

One problem in the application of excel sheet


I can make out that
You are speaking about creating a macro to take data from one constant updated cell and to put that data into another cell or form sheet.
You will need to get precise help from a programmer on this.
If you want to see a little on macros just open a sheet and checkout the help section on macros.
Some macros can take many hours to write and test.Some make take months.
hope this helps.

Macro on excel


Macros are a timesaving feature that allow you to record a sequence of actions that you do in excel, and replay them back later.

You give each macro a name, and you can invoke them later, and Excel will "do" whatever it is you did when you recorded the macro.

To record a new macro:
1) Open Excel
2) Go to Tools->Macros->Record New Macro...
3) Type in a name for your macro and hit OK

(A new toolbar will popup with a "stop" button on it. Excel is now recording everything you do)

4) Do something, like, for example, select some cells and make them bold.
5) Click the "stop" button.


Now your macro has been recorded! You can play it back later by:

1) Open Excel
2) Go to Tools->Macros->Macros...
3) Select your macro from the list
4) Click "Run"

The actions you performed earlier will now be executed.



-------


Macros are written in Visual Basic for Applications, or "VBA". It is a programming language which uses the Excel Object Model to perform various actions. You can edit and create custom macros by writing the code manually in VBA. To do this:

1) Open Excel
2) Go to tools->macros->macros...
3) Select an already existing macro
4) Click "Edit"

(The visual basic editor will open, showing you the code for your macro)

At this point you are writing a program in Visual Basic. To learn how to edit macros, you need to learn visual basic, as well as the specific quirks related to excel macros in visual basic.

Recording a macro, and then using it as a template while you edit it is a common trick for making macros manually more quickly.

If you are not familiar with VB, I would not suggest attempting to edit your macros in any but the most simplest of ways. If you're brave, you can try to learn about editing macros in VBA here:
