    Re: Record a Macro in MS Excel 2007

    Here's how to record a macro to apply these formats:

    1. In the workbook where you track your accounts receivable, click one of the cells you're going to format.
    2. Point to Macro on the Tools menu, and then click Record New Macro.
    3. In the Record Macro dialog box, type a name for the macro in the Macro name box. Macro names must start with a letter and can include letters, numbers, and underscore characters, but can't include spaces. You don't need to change the other boxes:

    When you click OK, the Stop Recording toolbar appears, and you're ready to record. Until you stop the recording, every Excel command and keystroke will be recorded in the macro, in the order in which they are entered.

    4. Now format the cell the way your boss wants it flagged: click Cells on the Format menu, click the Font tab, click Bold under Font style, click Red for Color, click the Border tab, click Red for Color, click the border thickness you want, click Outline, and then click OK.

    5.To finish recording the macro, click the Stop Recording button:
