Think of a macro as a tape recording. It remembers word for word what you “say” to Excel. VBA = Visual Basic for Applications. This is the language used by Excel to record macros.

In the video we cover a simple use-case for the macro recorder: how to change your number formats.

bertjan pieffers says:

I need some more info about this!
I have to correct all the stock in our stockroom. I use excel for this.
But Ive made a mistake. All the products are placed in the C-collumn and the site from the supplier is on the P-collumn. But I want to hyperlink all the C-collumns, so when I click on it, Im directly redirected to the site of the product.
But doing that for 2000 items is bit to mutch. So, is it possible to record a macro for this, and how to do this?

James Perry says:

Great ! Huge time-saver. Thank u.
