Macro is an automated process in Microsoft office products. You can use this feature to make recording the process and minimize your work. For example, if you are starting to work on the Word document you are changing the Page Margin, Page Size, Page Border and include the Watermark of your document. This process you must do each time for the new documents. Macro is minimizing this process and includes all these setups just click on the one short cut key.
