Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro programming is a powerful tool in Microsoft Excel. VBA macros can be repetitive Automate tasks, perform complex calculations, and even create custom functions. However, creating VBA macros can be challenging for beginners and even some advanced users. This is where ChatGPT comes into play.
ChatGPT, the highly developed AI-controlled chatbot technology from OpenAI, proved to be able to help users create VBA macros. She can provide detailed instructions and code examples to make the process easier.
- For example, let’s take a request where a user wants to create a VBA macro that saves all Excel workbooks and exits Excel at 6 p.m. every day. ChatGPT responds to this request with precise step-by-step instructions, including opening the “Visual Basic Editor”, creating a new module, inserting the macro code and starting the macro.
Unfortunately, this is where the problems that currently still exist begin that ChatGPT does not always take into account the differences between the versions of Excel in different languages. Questions about macros may require users to make additional adjustments and queries to optimize the proposed solutions.
