How to create a Button from Recorded Macro

Macros in fact are actions which we record. We can assign shortcuts to them for easy use. Check here for “How to create a macro”. If you have a Macro and often use it while working with the documents, Workbooks, Presentations or Database, you might use shortcut keys to run the Macro or the VIEW | DEVELOPER tab.
