This is an Excel macro that copies the contents of a worksheet one cell at a time allowing you to paste each value to a new destination. A message box will delay the copy of the next cell in the adjacent column. When you are ready to copy and paste the next cell value you can click OK to proceed. This macro is designed to skip blank cells (without spaces) moving immediately to the next populated cell. Once all the values in each column have been copied this macro continues onto the next row to do the same. The previous row will be hidden allowing you to focus on the row that you are copy and pasting. This is extremely helpful for manual data entry as you can simply tab back to have the Copy Paste macro and move onto the next cell to copy. The Copy Paste macro helps you mistake proof your data entries avoiding any potential typos or populating the incorrect records.

This Word macro displays an InputBox with a list of macros that can be called.  To call a specific macro just enter in the leading number and click ok. The concept of this macro is simple and helps you stay organized storing all macros within one button.

VBA Macro used in the Microsoft Office Outlook Application

Outlook Create Multiple Emails | VBA Macro #25

You just completed a task on your computer and now you need to email some impacted parties letting them know the task is complete.  Let’s say for example you have to email the client, the billing department, and your supervisor.  You could send one email including all these recipients but this is a problem if you are sending sensitive information specific to everyone involved.  Even if there isn’t sensitive information someone can use Reply All creating an email thread with everyone included. There has to be a better way…of course there is with VBA! This Outlook macro will create multiple emails based on the number that you indicate in an InputBox.  Think of this Create Multiple Emails macro as a code template that allows you generate multiple emails pertaining to different topics. Using the example above the first email can be dedicated to the client, the second email for the billing department, and the third email for your supervisor.
