Getting Dynamic Text Captions with Macros

The first time I’ve heard of macros was when I first used Microsoft Excel. Macros are defined as tiny snippets of programming codes to customize and enhanced the results on a spreadsheet or to perform repetitive tasks. In our applications, even though they do a lot of complicating codes at the background to get the result, it does work in a different manner.
