Edit Macro

You can edit or debug a macro that you recorded previously.

To edit a macro:

  1. Click Edit Macro tool_Edit_Macro.gif (Macro toolbar) or Tools > Macro > Edit .

    If you have previously edited macros, you can select the macro directly from the menu when you click Tools > Macro . This menu lists the last nine edited macros.

  2. In the dialog box, select a macro file (.swp) and click Open.

    You can also edit .swb files. When you run or edit an .swb file, it is automatically converted to a .swp file.

  3. Edit the macro. (For details, use the help in the macro editor.)
