stevecasper Posted January 26, 2009 Report Share Posted January 26, 2009 I have a number of macros that I use as a base for making certain adjustments. One example: a prompt asks for a dollar amount. If the user inputs "25" for "25.00" my macro will know to add the ".00" automatically, additionally if the amount is "2500", the macro will convert it to "2,500.00", adding a comma as well as the .00. This basic function is required for a number of macros that I use at work, and so I just use a "Run Macro" command within all these various other macros. Occasionally I give a macro a name like "Test File Repair" so I know it's just a test macro while I work with it and "beta test" the functionality before I roll it out to other users. Once that's done, I need to change the macro name, otherwise I may end up several months later with "Test File Repair 2" etc. and it gets cumbersome and confusing. So when I have half a dozen macros or more calling "Test File Repair," it can sometimes get confusing or I just plain forget which macros or how many macros are actually calling this one. So occasionally, I change the name, change the Run Macro in as many of the other macros as I can remember, and then continue testing for a few more days to see if I get any "Macro 'File Repair' could not be found, Macro will be aborted" errors (indicating a macro whose "Macro Run" was not changed for the new, Final, macro name. Now that I've gotten that long-winded background out of the way, is there any function in ME Pro that I haven't found yet, that will list all the macros which call a specific macro? Like if I were to right-click on the macro in the Explorer window and select "Macros Calling This One" menu (I know that particular method won't work). If not, I know a feature I'm going to submit a request for. Anybody know anything about the possibility of this feature's existence? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
