How do I record a macro in Excel 2010 ?

I am in the process of moving from Excel 2003 to Excel 2010

In Excel 2003, I have added a custom button to the toolbar called 'T1', and recorded a macro called temp1.

This macro is then assigned to button 'T1'

(I also have T2 - T10, but if I can create one I suspect I can create them all)

So if I record a sequence of actions to a macro called temp 1, I can replay these actions with a single click of button 'T1', which is really useful if I have to do the same edits to 10 identical spreadsheets.

How can I replicate this in Excel 2010?

Re: record macro

I managed to record the macro, where I am stuck is adding a button to the toolbar, and assigning the macro to it.

The link you gave shows how to add a custom group to the developer tab, and add your macro to it.

To run the macro will take 3 mouse clicks, where as a visible button on the toolbar with an assigned macro can be run with a single mouse click, as in excel 2003

That is what I am trying to do

I answered the question in your subject line.

Indeed, not the other ones in your post.

Re: having added custom button, how to modify it


Am nearly there, have got a button added to quick access toolbal, with macro temp1 assigned, and if I hover the mouse over the button, the text 'T1' pops up.

But in Excel 2003, you can change a button from 'default style' to ' Text only (always) '

Then you see T1 T2 etc on your toolbar, not a row of random buttons.

If I can do this, I will have what I have always had in 2003

Thanking you for your patience.
