Repetitive task

I log into a monitoring database via excel plug-in to access our portfolio companies monthly data and run through standard steps to send some data outputs to the portfolio companies Wondering if I can use the 'record macro' function to automate this procedure each month.

RE: Repetitive task

Hi Ryan,

Thank you for the forum question.

I do not believe that you can record the task. The recorder can only record what you can do in excel worksheets.

The task can be automated. I automate tasks like this by writing VBA codes or I use Power Query.

Kind regards

Excel tip:

##### displaying in Excel

When you get a series of hash symbols (####) appearing in some of your cells in a spreadsheet, this can make you think that you've make some kind of mistake.

This is a common misconception - what this actually means is that the cell is not wide enough to fully display the content of the cell.

All you need to do to see what is actually in the cell is to widen the column that the cell is in.
