Re: Macro

Macros are VBScript or JScript subroutines, also called "Module". You can access them by the button "Edit Module" in the Design toolbar (next to the Table Viewer).

Macros can help you make mass changes in your document, or perform certain automation features that are not available as actions. In production environments, macros are not recommended, because they are not as stable as we wish, and they can slow down your system, for a variety of reasons.

The best way to learn macros is to obtain a copy of the document APIGuide.QVW and browse various samples.

good luck!

Re: Macro

You almost never need macro's. And macro's do not always work in the ajax client. You probably do not need to learn how to code macro's. But if you really want to you can find enough examples on this site. You have a choice of vbscript or javascript for creating macro's (only one language for the entire document). You can find api documentation here:
