In this video, you’ll get a introduction to Word Macros, specifically, you’ll get a tutorial on how to edit a Macro in Microsoft Word. You’ll start by recording a ms word macro using the macro recorder. Then, we’ll walk through step-by-step how to edit that macro to make it exactly what you want.

The macro we’ll create is one that will take the selected text and find the next occurrence of that text in the document. We’ll attach it to a hot key, so it can be run quickly. When we’re finished, you’ll have a macro that you can use daily, no matter what document you have open.
