Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the file found in the folder above.

There are already some macros in this file which will change the colours of various sections of the picture - try testing them out!

Excel VBA Macros exercise - Recording macros and buttons (image 1)

A child's drawing of a house!

Record two more macros which will do the following actions:

  • Change the colour of the door to green.
  • Change the colour of the roof to blue.

There are range names in this file to help make the selection of the areas easy.

Add two new buttons to the table to run these new macros.

If you have time you could record a macro which changes the colour of more than one area to create a 'Day' effect and also a 'Night' effect.

Save the amended file as My House - Decorating and close it down.
