You are in the zone typing away suddenly work comes to a screeching halt because you can’t remember how to type the next part. The Word Quick Text macro was designed so you can be more efficient and get back on track. Running this macro will display an InputBox giving you an opportunity to recall specific information from within the VBA code. Make your selection by entering the leading number and watch the text populate at the current location of your cursor. The Quick Text macro helps you quickly enter text that you use on a frequent basis. This Word macro can also be used to recall text that you don’t use often. VBA helps you store and access information allowing you free up the memory between your ears. You can spend time typing and studying flash cards for memorization.
