5 Exercise 14 – Learning Results: Exercise – Developers Mode and Simple Programming Macros in Excel 1.Workbook.XLSX file extension is default workbook format (filename.xlsx) used in Excel 2010 2.Workbooks that contain a saved Macro must use a different SAVE As command called Macro- Enabled workbook. A workbook may contain many command macros or scripts (active computer programs). Students will learn to record and then run their 1 st Macro Learn how to create a command short cut of their own. Similar to CNTR + R keystroke to fill right etc or CNTR +D keystroke to Fill Down. Run Macro and View software code in VBasic editor mode. Toggle back and forth from Speadsheet mode to Programming modes. Etc. Learn how to save the Macro-enabled file using a different SAVE AS format called Macro-enabled workbook. Note: Students previously learned how to save as a Workbook and then as a Template in previous exercises.
8 Software Compatibility Software versions are important information – Older document versions are typically forward compatible. Another way to state is the earlier versions (e.g 1.0 and 2.0 ) can be used to read and import into later versions like 4.0 or year designation like Office 2010. Backward Compatibility is not the industry normal for commercial software. Why?? For example files created by the use in an Office 2013 application do not automatically import or open in Office 2010 Application Programs. Additional steps needed to ensure compatibility Need to use save as : backward compatible version to ensure interoperability and compatibility.
9 Software Compatibility Excel workbook = xlsx file extension for Office 2010 Macros – xlxm file extension for macro enabled workbooks Web page = htm for the entire workbook/ publish / as interactive (eg calculating vs static data display) or just a section of a worksheet ( $A$1:$F$12 work area dimension defined) and change title of document to publish or post on website (rename feature) Template = XLT file extension Excel 4.0 and before = xls (single worksheets) This is before the Excel workbook feature. Binary = xlsb file extension
