Macros 9 – Report and Add-in Creation

 Price: $25 incl GST

Duration: 1 hour

Add-ins are special files that remove a number of limitations associated with macros. This session will show you how to create a macro that runs multiple reports and then turn it into an add-in file that you can use to create the reports on any file.

To see an example of the report code check out a recent blog post. This session will cover adding more features and more reports and how to convert the reports into an Add-in with a simple user interface.

The three reports created are

  1. Comments Report – lists details of all cells with comments, including a hyperlink – great for documenting a file
  2. Error Report – lists details of cells identified by Excel’s built-in error checker
  3. Adjustment Report – list details of cell formulas with added value entries eg =SUM(A1:A10)+100

These reports are great for documentation and assistance with debugging and auditing files. All the reports include a hyperlink to the cell involved.

Note: this is NOT a beginners session! You need experience with macros to get the most out of this session.
