In the following project, you will assist Bill Roman, Project Director, in creating a macro that will assign an operations department heading required on all reports. You will modify the macro by changing the Visual Basic Code.
Navigate to your Excel Chapter 9 folder, and then double-click the Excel file you downloaded from MyLab IT that displays your name—Student_Excel_9E_Operations.xlsx. Verify that the Developer tab is enabled and the Macro Settings are set to Disable all macros with notification. Display the Save As dialog box, navigate to your Excel Chapter 9 folder, set the Save as type to Excel Macro-Enabled Workbook, and then save your file.
With cell A1 active, record a macro with the name Operations_Header and the shortcut key Ctrl + m. (Mac users, use Option + Command + m.) Store the macro in This Workbook. As the description, type Fills in Operations report heading and then click OK to begin recording the macro.
Insert two blank rows at the top of the worksheet, and then click cell A1. Type WPHRC Operations Department and then Merge & Center the text you typed across the range A1:E1. Apply the Title cell style. In cell A2, type Quarterly Report and then Merge & Center the text you typed across the range A2:E2. Apply the Heading 1 cell style. Center the worksheet Horizontally, click cell A1, and then stop recording the macro.
