Course Description: Using Word Macros to Enhance Technical Documents
Note: This Knowledge University program can hold up to 18 participants. A waiting list will be started once we reach full capacity. Please contact the Events Committee Manager. EEI requires that we have a minimum of 14 seats filled. EEI also maintains an 8-day cancellation policy.
Microsoft Word can be frustrating, but you can use macros to harness its real power. This workshop will teach you the basics of creating, testing, troubleshooting, and storing macros. Participants should be advanced Word users and should thoroughly understand styles, AutoText, fields, and templates.
