    Open Excel. You can make Macros in there using Visual Basic etc.

    A macro, IIRC is basically just a button that runs a set of commands. Although, I could be completely off the mark here ;)

    yeh i know how to do macros in excel and word etc... so could do that. however it doesnt state any program to do the macro in, cause its a "build PC project" im guessing it means a macro in the OS , being windows xp pro , i really dont know how you can do macros within the desktop/OS ... at last resort i will do a macro in excel :p

    any other thoughts?

    Tried asking your teacher? :p

    Maybe a Linux based macro or something?

    You might have more luck with this in the software section.
