MS Access 2013: Create a Macro

Microsoft Access provides the ability for you to create macros. A macro refers to a set of actions that can be run automatically, and on demand. Macros are usually configured to run whenever a particular event occurs. You specify what that event is when you create the macro. You could make a macro run when a user presses a certain key, or you could make a macro run everytime your database is opened.
