9 1 Using Mail Merge Lesson Time: 50 minutes Lesson Objectives In this lesson, you will: Perform a mail merge. Merge envelope and label data. Create a data source using Word. Lesson Introduction You have seen how using a template can speed along the formatting of your documents. Another useful feature is being able to customize documents for individual recipients. If you have a list of the names, addresses, or other information that needs to go into each separate document, you can use the mail merge feature to customize the documents, which is what you will do in this lesson.

10 2 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros TOPIC A The Mail Merge Features If you have a document with static text, but you need to personalize it with the recipient s name and address, you can use the mail merge feature. Rather than manually entering the name and address on each document, you can merge that data into your document, which greatly reduces the time needed to prepare the documents. In this topic, you will perform a simple mail merge in a document. Mail Merge Fields and Merge Results Mail Merge Amail merge is a process by which a list of data is inserted into a document to create multiple individualized documents. A main document contains the static information that will be in all of the documents. It also contains fields into which the variable data will be inserted. The data source is a list, a database, a spreadsheet any type of structured data that is inserted into the main document during a mail merge. Examples of customized documents you can create include letters, envelopes, labels, and phone and address books. Note: The main document is an ordinary Word file into which you have inserted merge fields. Figure 1-1: Mail merge fields and merge results. Lesson 1: Using Mail Merge OTS Training

11 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros 3 If you want to demonstrate the items covered in the concepts in this topic, you can start a mail merge now and then as you go through this topic, you can demonstrate the use of each of the items discussed. Data Source in a Word Table Figure 1-2: Data source in a Word table. Mail Merge Fields A merge field is a placeholder in the merge document that variable data is inserted into. The merge field provides a link to the variable information in the data source. The merge field name is displayed in your document with double chevrons around the name. The merge field indicates the category of data that will appear in your document at the location where the merge field is placed in the document. Figure 1-3: Mail merge fields are surrounded by double chevrons. There are several predefined types of merge fields you can insert in your main document. You can also add other fields using More Items, or you can manually insert the other fields in your document. The merge code is shown in the document. If you want to see the data instead, press Alt+F9 to toggle between data and the merge code. Address Block The <<Address Block>> field inserts the name and address from the data source. Microsoft Word automatically determines which data source fields contain the appropriate name and address data. If your columns are named with something other than the default names, you will need to manually match the data to the fields. In the example shown in the following figure, the data source uses Street rather than Address 1 as a column heading. Therefore, you need to manually match Street and Address 1. Mail Merge Fields Explain that the <<AddressBlock>> field code contains specific field names that it uses to pull data from the data source. These include First Name, Last Name, Address 1, City, State, and Zip. Matching Mail Merge Fields Towson University Lesson 1: Using Mail Merge

12 4 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros Figure 1-4: If the data source uses different field names than those listed in the Address Block, you need to match mail merge fields to fields in the source document. Ask students whether they would change the data source file to use the heading names or if they would use Match Fields. It would depend on how else the source was used. If it is a file they have complete control over and no other application expects the column heading to be something specific, they might consider changing the heading in the data source. Insert Greeting Line Dialog Box Note: Field names with a space in the column header show up in the Merge Fields list with an underscore where the space was. Greeting Line The <<Greeting Line>> field inserts the recipient s name from the data source along with text such as Dear or To followed by the name and punctuation. By default, it uses the First Name and Last Name fields from the data source. You can manually select other options. Lesson 1: Using Mail Merge OTS Training

13 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros 5 Figure 1-5: You can configure the Greeting Line field through the Insert Greeting Line dialog box. More Items If you have fields that are not part of the address, phone, name, or other fields the Mail Merge Wizard knows about, you can use the More Items link to add those fields to your document. You can select from Address Fields or Database Fields. As with the other merge fields, position your cursor in the main document where you want the field to appear, and then insert the merge field. In the following figure, the $3500 was added through a field in the data sourced named Total. More Items Mail Merge Field Note: If you select Address Fields, all possible fields are listed even if they are not in your data source. The Database Fields selection lists only the fields in your data source. In the data source file the dollar value is in a column named Total, which shows up in More Items as Total_ because there is a space after Total in the file. Figure 1-6: The dollar value was added using the More Items mail merge field. Electronic Postage If you have an electronic postage application installed on your computer, you can add the Electronic Postage field. If you do not have an electronic postage application installed, you will be prompted to install one. If you have access to an electronic postage application, you can show students how it can be integrated into the mail merge process. Towson University Lesson 1: Using Mail Merge

14 6 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros Mail Merge Rules Rules There are several rules you can use to programmatically select what data or how data is inserted in the main document from the source data file. For example, you can use if, then, else logic to add one block of text if a condition is met or another block of text if the condition is not met. Another rule allows you to skip a record if a condition is not met. The available rules are listed on the MAILINGS tab, in the Write & Insert Fields group from the Rules button drop-down list. Figure 1-7: The available mail merge rules. The following figure shows an example of using the If Then Else rule. Mail Merge IF Rule Engage students in a discussion about how they might use the IF rule in their documents. Figure 1-8: The mail merge IF rule specifies which field to compare, what to compare it to, and what to insert in the document if it is true or false. Lesson 1: Using Mail Merge OTS Training

15 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros 7 Data Sources A data source is a document in which information is listed in columns and rows. The columns are categories of information. Each row contains the records for one set of data. The top row of the data source is the header row, which identifies the category of information in that column. The data source can be: A database. An Outlook Contacts list or address book from another program. Word tables. An Excel worksheet. Comma separated value (CSV) or tab separated text files. Mail Merge Data Sources Have students share what types of files they expect their data sources to be. The Mail Merge Process There are five main steps in the mail merge process. Mail Merge Process Step 1) Create the main document. 2) Connect the main document and data source. 3) If desired, specify which records to include. 4) Insert merge fields into the main document. 5) Preview and print or the documents. Description This document contains the static text and graphics that will be included in all of the merge documents. The data source contains the variable data. It can be an existing document, or you can create a list within the Mail Merge Wizard. A copy of the main document is generated for each record in your data source. If you only want to create documents for specific records, you can specify which records to include. For example, only records with a specific zip code or only records for people with a failing test score. Insert the fields from the data source into the main document to link them together. The data source information will replace the placeholder merge fields during the mail merge. You can preview each of the documents prior to printing or ing the merge documents. The MAILINGS Tab Mail merges are completed using the MAILINGS tab. You can use the Mail Merge Wizard or manually connect the main document and data source using options on this tab. Until you have started the mail merge process, most of the buttons on the tab are dimmed. When an option is enabled, like on other tabs, the button remains highlighted after selecting it. Buttons that you can enable include the Highlight Merge Fields and Preview Results buttons. MAILINGS Tab Towson University Lesson 1: Using Mail Merge

16 8 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros Point out that most of the buttons are dimmed before you start a mail merge. Figure 1-9: MAILINGS tab before a mail merge is started (top) and after (bottom). Mail Merge Wizard Steps The Mail Merge Wizard You can manually insert fields into your main document, or you can use the Step by Step Mail Merge Wizard. The wizard is available on the MAILINGS tab, in the Start Mail Merge group, from the Start Mail Merge drop-down list. There are six steps in the wizard. Each step prompts you for the relevant information to complete the step. The following table describes the steps. Step Description 1. Select document type Choices include letters, envelopes, labels, or directory. 2. Select starting document Choices include current document, start from a template, or start from existing document. 3. Select recipients Choices include use an existing list, Outlook contacts, or type a new list. 4. Write your letter In this step, you insert the merge fields. If necessary, you can also enter the static text in the document. 5. Preview your letters In this step, you can preview any or all of the merged letters. You can also make changes to the recipient list or exclude a recipient. 6. Complete the merge In this step, you can print all of the merged documents or edit individual documents. You don t have to complete the merge all at once. You can save your main merge document. When you open the document later, the associated data source is also opened. Open the Mail Merge task pane to finish the merge. Insert Merge Field Dialog Box Merge Dialog Boxes If you are creating your merge document manually, there are some dialog boxes with which you should become familiar. Insert Merge Field The Insert Merge Field dialog box is accessed in step 4 of the Mail Merge Wizard when you select More Items, or if you are manually inserting fields, when you select Insert Merge Field from the Write & Insert Fields group of the MAILINGS tab. Lesson 1: Using Mail Merge OTS Training

17 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros 9 Figure 1-10: You can manually insert fields using the Insert Merge Field dialog box. Use the Address Fields option to select a built-in field that wasn t included in one of the predefined merge blocks you inserted. You also need to use this if the field names in your source data document do not match those in the merge wizard. Use the Database Fields option to insert a field that is not in the predefined list of fields. Mail Merge Recipients The Mail Merge Recipients dialog box is accessed in step 3 of the Mail Merge Wizard when you select Edit recipient list, or if you are done with the wizard or manually inserting fields, in the Start Mail Merge group, select Edit Recipient List. Mail Merge Recipients Dialog Box Towson University Lesson 1: Using Mail Merge

18 10 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros Point out the options for Refine recipient list. Ask students why they might use these features. Figure 1-11: Mail Merge Recipients dialog box. Use this dialog box to add, remove, or edit recipients in the list. You can also sort, filter, find duplicates, find recipients, and validate addresses. Select Sort or Filter to display the Query Options dialog box. The Filter Records tab has options to select the field to filter by, a comparison operation, and what to compare. The Sort Records tab has options for which field to sort by and the sort order. Unlink a Data Source If you decide that you don t want the document to merge with data from a data source, you can revert the document back to a normal Word document. This is will unlink any fields from the data source. You can leave it as a normal Word document or select another data source to use with the document and set it up again. Opening a Document with a Data Source Attached SQL Warning Message When you open a main document that already has a data source attached, a warning dialog box is displayed to let you know that the document will run a SQL command. Select Yes to continue opening the document and using the data source. Lesson 1: Using Mail Merge OTS Training

19 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros 11 Figure 1-12: This SQL warning message is displayed when you open a source document that has been attached to a data source document.

26 18 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros TOPIC B Merge Envelopes and Labels You have created custom letters using data merged from a list into your main document. You can also create customized envelopes and labels using merge data, which is what you will do in this topic. You will see how you can simply merge the address information and print envelopes or labels as easily as you created merge letters. Envelope with Merge Fields and Merge Results Point out that if their organization uses envelopes with a preprinted return address, they will not want to print the return address when printing envelopes. Merge Options for Envelopes and Labels When you create envelopes and labels with merge fields, there are several options you can set. For envelopes, you can set the size, the font, and the position of return and delivery addresses, as well as printing options such as face up or face down. For labels, you can set the label vendor, set the label style number, specify your own dimensions for the label, and give printer information such as continuous-feed printer or a specific printer tray. Figure 1-13: An envelope with merge fields and merge results. Create a Single Envelope or Label If you just need to print a single envelope at any time, you can use this feature. Before you print all of your merged envelopes or labels, you might want to print a single envelope or label to verify that your printer options are correctly configured to print envelopes or labels. The MAILINGS tab includes the option to print a single label or envelope. Instead of merging the data from a data source, you enter the data in the Envelopes and Labels dialog box. Lesson 1: Using Mail Merge OTS Training

27 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros 19 Set Up a Return Address You can use an advanced Word option to configure a return address that can be used whenever you need to insert your return address on an envelope, label, or letter. To insert the return address wherever you need it, from the Quick Parts menu, select Field, select UserAddress, and then select OK.

32 24 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros TOPIC C Create a Data Source Using Word You have seen how to create letters, labels, and envelopes using an existing data source. You will likely need to create your own data source at some point, and in this topic, you will create a data source in Word. Data Sources Often, someone else will have created a list of data for you to use in a merge document. As mentioned, data sources can be Word tables, CSV or tab separated text files, Excel worksheets, or output from a database. Data Guidelines When you create a data source, no matter which application you use to create it, follow these guidelines: The top row of the data must be the field names that categorize the data in each column. Each field name in the data source document must be unique. Field names should begin with a letter, when possible. If the field name begins with a special character or number, an alpha character is added to the beginning of field names in merge fields when inserted into a merge document. Field names must be less than 40 characters; shorter is better. If you use spaces in the field name, they will be replaced with underscores in the merge field codes, so try to avoid using spaces. How to Create a Data Source Using Word You can create a data source using a Word table. No special formatting is needed. You could also create a list separated by commas or tabs, with the first row being the field names. Create a Data Source in Word To create a data source in Word: 1. Open a new blank document. 2. Insert a table. The table needs to have one column for each field your data source needs. 3. On the first row of the table, type the column headings that will be used for the field names. 4. For each data record, type the information on a separate row in the table. 5. Save the document. Lesson 1: Using Mail Merge OTS Training

33 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros 25 ACTIVITY 1-3 Creating a Data Source Using Word Data Files C:\091025Data\Using Mail Merge\Manager promotions.docx C:\091025Data\Using Mail Merge\Managers data.docx Scenario Your manager has finished employee interviews and is ready to send out the notices to the employees who are being promoted to department managers in the new store. He gave you a list of names with the department they will manage and their new salary. Instead of entering the information manually for each new manager, you would like to create a source data document so that you can merge the data and create the letters all at once. 1. Examine the Word table to be used as a data source. a) From the C:\091025Data\Using Mail Merge folder, open Managers data.docx. b) Notice that this is just a regular table created in Word. c) Close the file. 2. From the C:\091025Data\Using Mail Merge folder, open Manager promotions.docx. Point out that this activity could have used the Step-by-Step Mail Merge Wizard, but that this is good practice for performing a merge without the wizard. Students can use the wizard if they prefer. 3. Replace the blanks in the document with the appropriate merge fields. a) On the MAILINGS tab, in the Start Mail Merge group, select the Select Recipients drop-down and then select Use an Existing List. b) Browse to the C:\091025Data\Using Mail Merge folder and open Managers data.docx. c) Select the first set of underscores. d) In the Write & Insert Fields group, select the Insert Merge Field drop-down and select First_Name. e) Select the next set of underscores and replace them with the merge field Department. f) Select the last set of underscores and replace them with the merge field Salary. 4. Highlight the merge fields and preview the results. a) In the Write & Insert Fields group, select Highlight Merge Fields to place a highlight over the merge fields to make them easier to locate when previewing the results. b) In the Preview Results group, select Preview Results. c) Select Next Record several times to preview the merged letters. d) Select Highlight Merge Fields to remove the highlight over the merge fields. e) Save the file in the current folder as My Manager promotions f) In the Finish group, select the Finish & Merge drop-down. g) Select Edit Individual Documents. h) With All selected, select OK. i) Scroll through the new document to verify that the data was successfully merged. j) Save the new document as My Merged Manager Promotions k) Close all open files. Verify that everyone successfully completed the activity. Towson University Lesson 1: Using Mail Merge

34 26 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros Encourage students to use the social networking tools provided on the Logical Choice Home screen to follow up with their peers after the course is completed for further discussion and resources to support continued learning. Summary In this lesson, you created customized labels, envelopes, and letters using the mail merge feature in Word. You also created a data source document in Word for use in a mail merge. This is a useful feature you are likely to use often if you need to send mass mailings in your organization. How might you use mail merge in your organization? A: Answers will vary, but might include: For creating mass mailing labels or envelopes, for creating folder labels, or for customizing letters that have mostly static text and graphics, but need to be personalized. Will you use the wizard or the manual method for creating mail merge documents? Why? A: Answers will vary, but might include: Using the wizard because it walks you through all of the steps to create a merge document, or using the manual method if your field names don t match what the wizard expects them to be. Note: Check your LogicalCHOICE Course screen for opportunities to interact with your classmates, peers, and the larger LogicalCHOICE online community about the topics covered in this course or other topics you are interested in. From the Course screen you can also access available resources for a more continuous learning experience. Lesson 1: Using Mail Merge OTS Training

35 2 Using Macros Lesson Time: 35 minutes Lesson Objectives In this lesson, you will: Automate tasks using macros. Create a macro. Lesson Introduction You have seen quite a few ways that you can automate tasks throughout this course. If you have a series of commands and instructions that you perform often, you can group them together as a single command called a macro. The macro will perform all of the tasks with a single click. In this lesson, you will create and use macros to automate tasks in Word. You can create your own macros, and record the repetitive tasks that you want to add to the macro. You can also create more complex macros with Visual Basic for Applications.

36 28 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros TOPIC A Automate Tasks Using Macros Do you wish you didn t have to perform a long sequence of mouse clicks and keystrokes every time you format something? It sure can be frustrating. You can bundle all of those mouse clicks and keystrokes into a single mouse click or keyboard shortcut in a macro. Macros Results of Running a Macro A macro is a set of instructions that are accessed and performed with a single mouse click or keyboard shortcut. Macros are used to automate a group of steps that are performed often. Each macro must have a unique name within the document in which it is stored. Macros are usually stored in templates, but can also be stored in documents. If you want the macro to be available in all of your documents, store it in a global template such as the Normal template. A template or document that contains macros has a different file extension than other templates and documents. Instead of.dotx and.docx for regular template and document files, files with macros end in.dotm and.docm. Figure 2-1: Results of running a macro. Note: This macro inserted a building block from the Quick Parts menu, inserted a header with text in a different font, formatted italic; had a double-line border added to the paragraph; and inserted the date and page number in the footer. All of this was accomplished with a single keyboard shortcut defined to run the macro. Lesson 2: Using Macros OTS Training

37 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros 29 The Macros Dialog Box You access existing macros from the Macros dialog box. You can run, edit, create, and delete macros from this dialog box. If you are troubleshooting a macro, you can use the Step Into button to step through the macro to locate the step within the macro that is not working properly. The Organizer button displays the Organizer dialog box, where you can copy macros from one template or file to another. The Macros dialog box lists the macros stored in the selected file. Macros Dialog Box Figure 2-2: You manage macros through the Macros dialog box. Note: The macros in the Macro name list are the macros from the file selected in the Macros in drop-down list. Macro Security As useful as macros are, they are also a vehicle hackers often use to get their malicious software on your computer. Macros use Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming code, which an unscrupulous hacker can use to add viruses to a document. For this reason, only use macros from a trusted source. Note: Depending on your organization s needs, the administrator might have set the macro trust settings so that all macros are disabled in order to prevent macros from running. Macro Security Components Manage macro security settings through the Trust Center. In order for a macro to run in your document, the Trust Center evaluates several security risks before the macro is enabled, including: A digital signature from the developer. That the digital signature is valid and has not expired. That the digital signature was issued by a reputable certificate authority. That the developer is a trusted publisher. If the macro fails to pass any of the security risk evaluations, the macro is disabled and a message is displayed to indicate that there is a possibility that the macro is unsafe. If you are sure that the macro is safe, you can enable it through the Trust Center. Be sure students are aware of how dangerous it can be to use macros from an unknown source. Macros can easily have malicious code included in them that can infect the student s system and other systems on the network. Towson University Lesson 2: Using Macros

38 30 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros Digital Signatures A digital signature is an electronic mathematical cryptographic method of proving the identity of the macro publisher. It uses digital certificates issued by a certification authority. File Validation File validation is a process that checks any file you attempt to open from an untrusted source to verify that it is a valid file. This is one way in which hackers can be thwarted from introducing macros with malicious code into your system. Trust Center Options Trust Center In the Trust Center, you can set the security and privacy settings for Microsoft Word macros. The security components you can configure there are listed in the following table. Trust Center Option Trusted Publishers Trusted Locations Trusted Documents Macro Settings Message Bar Description Lists any publishers that are to be trusted. Be sure to check the expiration date and remove any expired trusted publishers. Any location listed in this section is considered secure, so be sure that a location is secure before you add a local or network path to the list. Any files in these paths will not go through the file validation process. Specify whether documents on the network should be trusted. You can also disable trusted documents and clear all trusted documents so that they are no longer trusted. Specify whether to enable or disable macros. You can disable all macros with or without notification, or disable all macros except those that are digitally signed. Even though it is not recommended, you can also enable all macros. Specify whether or not a message bar is displayed when macros are blocked. The DEVELOPER Tab Point out that even though the DEVELOPER tab is displayed on the classroom computers, by default it is not displayed. If it is not displayed on their computers, students will need to use the Word Options to display it. The DEVELOPER Tab To create a macro you use the DEVELOPER tab. You can also run or record a macro from the VIEW tab, but the DEVELOPER tab has access to all of the tools you need to record, edit, organize, and run macros. Figure 2-3: Macros are recorded and managed from the DEVELOPER tab. Caution: The DEVELOPER tab is not displayed by default. How to Automate Tasks Using Macros If you create your own macros or receive them from another trusted publisher, macros can save you a lot of time. Remember though, macros can contain malicious code, so be careful! Lesson 2: Using Macros OTS Training

40 32 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros ACTIVITY 2-1 Automating Tasks Using Macros Data Files C:\091025Data\Using Macros\SmothersNewsletter.docm Before You Begin Verify that the DEVELOPER tab is displayed. If necessary, follow the steps in the How to Automate Tasks Using Macros section to display it. Scenario The applications administrator for Smothers & Family Hardware created a new macro, SMacro2, for formatting documents. You know you can trust the macro because it was created internally. Her memo explaining how to use the new macro said the keyboard shortcut for it is Ctrl+Shift+Alt+D. The macro formats documents so that the store name is properly formatted, along with proper headers and footers. You are ready to add the store name, header, and footer to the document. The administrator sent the macro as part of a document file, but she said if you add it to your Normal template, it will be available in any new document. 1. Open the file containing the macro and enable macros. a) From the C:\091025Data\Using Macros folder, open SmothersNewsletter.docm. b) In the SECURITY WARNING message, select Enable Content. c) Position the cursor at the beginning of the heading Smothers & Family Hardware Opens New Store. 2. Run the SMacro2 macro. a) On the DEVELOPER tab, in the Code group, select Macros. b) In the Macros dialog box, select SMacro2. c) Select Run. The Smothers & Family Hardware title is added to the top of the document along with a header and footer on each page. 3. Remove the header and footer from the first page. a) On the first page of the document, double-click in the Header area. b) On the HEADER & FOOTER TOOLS DESIGN tab, in the Options group, check Different First Page. This will remove the header and footer from the first page. Note: Just because something is formatted or inserted with a macro doesn t mean that it can t be edited or deleted. 4. Copy the SMacro2 macro to the Normal template. a) On the DEVELOPER tab, in the Code group, select Macros. b) Select Organizer. c) In the left pane with SmothersNewsletter selected, select NewMacros. d) With the Normal template selected in the right pane, select Copy. e) Select Close. 5.

Towson University Lesson 2: Using Macros

42 34 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros TOPIC B Create a Macro You have run a macro that was already created. In this topic, you will create your own macro. Creating macros will help you more quickly perform repetitive, lengthy tasks with a single click or by pressing the keys for a keyboard shortcut. The Record Macro Dialog Box The Record Macro Dialog Box When you record a macro, the Record Macro dialog box is displayed. In this dialog box, you specify the name for the macro and you can optionally assign it to a button or a keyboard shortcut. You can also add a description. Figure 2-4: The Record Macro dialog box is displayed when you select Record Macro. Note: It is a good idea to include the keyboard shortcut combination in the Description for the macro. Macro Names A macro name must be unique within the file in which it is stored. The name must begin with a letter and the name cannot contain any spaces. The name can be composed of letters, numbers, and the underscore, but no other special characters. Keyboard Shortcuts for Macros When you are creating a macro, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to press to run the macro. In order to make sure you don t assign a key combination that is already assigned to something in Word, check the Current keys section of the Customize Keyboard dialog box. If the key combination is already assigned, the assignment is listed as shown in the following figure. If it is already assigned and you don t use that key combination, you can reassign it to your macro. If you want to change the key combination you are assigning, press Backspace to remove what you have in the Press new shortcut key box, and then press a new key combination. Lesson 2: Using Macros OTS Training

43 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros 35 Customize Keyboard Dialog Box Figure 2-5: Keyboard shortcut assignment for a macro. If you forget which keyboard shortcut you assigned to a macro, or if you want to change the shortcut key combination, use the Customize Ribbon dialog box to access the Customize Keyboard dialog box. There, the current keyboard shortcut is listed. You also have the opportunity to assign a new keyboard shortcut. Buttons for Macros You can assign a macro to a button that is accessed from the Quick Access Toolbar. Word uses a default button icon for macros. You can select the macro name and add it to the toolbar, then select Modify and select one of the other symbols. VBA Macros are created in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). VBA is a programming language embedded in Office applications. It is a subset of the Visual Basic (VB) programming language. While VB can be used to create standalone applications, VBA programs run within the host application; for example, within Word or Excel. When you record a macro, it is saved as VBA code. You can view and edit the VBA code in the Visual Basic Editor. The Visual Basic Editor interface has a Project pane that lists the VBA modules contained in all open documents and templates. The Normal template is listed, and each document is listed as a Project. If any templates besides Normal are open, they are listed as Template Projects. Below the Project pane is the Properties pane. This lists the properties of the selected item in the Project pane. If the shortcut key combination you select is already assigned to something, the Currently assigned to message will identify the command to which it is already assigned. You can choose to reassign it to your macro or press a different key combination for the shortcut key. VBA Window Point out that VBA is a subset of VB. In VB, you can create standalone applications and VBA programming is used to program within an Office application. Towson University Lesson 2: Using Macros

44 36 Word 2013: Mail Merge and Macros To the right of the Project and Properties panes is the Code window. You can view and edit the code for the selected project in this window. Each macro that you record is saved in a block of VBA code. Blocks of code are stored in a module. Each macro within the module is listed as Sub macro_name() within the module. Figure 2-6: The VBA window. How to Create a Macro You can record mouse clicks and keystrokes in a macro. If you need to select text as part of the macro recording, it must be done with the keyboard rather than with the mouse. You will want to plan your macro before you begin recording because every mouse click and key press will be recorded as part of the macro. You should perform the steps prior to recording to test that the steps produce the desired outcome. Record a Macro To record a macro: 1. Open a document. This can be the document in which you want to run the macro, or a blank document. You just need a document open so you can access the Record Macro button. 2. On the DEVELOPER tab, in the Code group, select Record Macro. Alternatively, you can access Record Macro from the VIEW tab, in the Macros group, from the Macros drop-down or on the Microsoft Office status bar. 3. In the Record Macro dialog box, in the Macro name text box, type a name for the macro. 4. If desired, assign a keyboard shortcut or a Quick Access Toolbar button to the macro. 5. From the Store macro in drop-down list, select the file where the macro will be stored. Storing it in the Normal template makes it available to all documents. Storing it in the current document makes it available only in that document. 6. If desired, in the Description text box, type a description of the macro. If you are assigning a keyboard shortcut, note the key combination in the description. Lesson 2: Using Macros OTS Training
