For example, instead of clicking the Reports icon in the Objects bar in the database window, finding and opening a specific report, printing it, and then closing it, you could create a macro to print the report with the click of a single button.
A macro is a set of one or more actions that perform a particular operation, such as opening a form or printing a report. Macros can help you to automate common tasks. For example, you can run a macro that prints a report when a user clicks a command button.
In a way, you can think of macros as a very simple introduction to programming because you can use them to create automated tasks and somewhat complex procedures. Best of all, you don't have to know a single line of code Access provides you with everything you need to write a macro.
