What is a Macro?

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Tue, Dec 07, 2010

A macro can be defined several different ways, but a simple definition is that a macro is a command that is part of an application and executes a series of commands. A macro performs a task or series of tasks, and many times these tasks are repetitive or frequently performed tasks. Here are a few examples where a macro could be useful in an accounting system such as Sage Accpac ERP:

  • importing data from an outside source
  • changing employee numbers, and
  • performing data integrity checks.

Macros can be useful and tremendous time-savers for many different reasons. Contact us today to discuss a specific manual process you are experiencing. We'll be glad to talk with you about your options.
