A Macro is a set of commands that are run when the Macro is used. Macros can be run by calling them by their assigned Hot Key (a specified keyboard combination - for example: [Ctrl]+[Shift]+[D]), from a Toolbar Button, from a Script, from other programs, or from other Macros. The commands included in a Macro can vary from simple simulated key presses to advanced defined values for variables. Access Macros from the Transaction, Parameters, Macros menu. Access the Edit Macro screen by pressing [Ins] to create a new Macro or pressing [F3] to edit an existing Macro.
