Macro RRS feed

  • Question

  • Folks - is it pretty easy to create a macro to perform these functions?

    - open a file within excel that is sort of a template that is going to be used to filter data off my current file

    - then perform a function using Data -> advanced

    - After that is processed which usually takes 45 second, sort by a particular column

    - then, delete any columns which show two keywords in the same above column

    I may hire someone to do the above but just trying to understand amount of time it'll take for someone who knows macros - is 1-2 hours sufficient?

  • Hi,

    Yes, those functions are pretty easy to create in a macro. You can record a new macro, do the stuff you want, stop the recording, and get a code baseline which you can modify as required.

  • Hello,

    You could visit Automate tasks with the Macro Recorder to see how to record a macro.

    If you have any new issues when modifying the macro, I suggest you post new threads and share your code and clarify the error and situation, then we could focus on specify issue to perfect the macro.
