One of the easiest ways to increase your day-to-day productivity with Microsoft Office Project 2003 is to use macros. Macros can automate repetitive, tedious, or complex tasks, freeing your time for more important tasks such as managing your projects.
This chapter focuses on macros you might use to automate tasks that you need to do frequently. Typically, macros are created by recording the steps in a task, which means that little (if any) programming is required.
For more information about advanced macro tasks, such as using them as part of larger solutions to customize or extend the Project 2003 interface and functionality, see Part 9.
