Note: We've just noticed some technical issues with the download links on Chrome browsers. We're working to fix it, but in the mean time, AutoMacro can be accessed here:



Below you will find two download links for the 64-bit and 32-bit versions of AutoMacro. You need to download the software version that matches your Microsoft Office installation (Not your Windows Installation!). To check which version you have installed, follow these directions.  If you install the wrong version, the add-in will not work.


To install the software follow these steps:

1. Click the download link above. Important! Make sure you download the version that corresponds to your Office installation (See these directions to determine which version you have)

2. Close All Microsoft Office Programs (Excel, PowerPoint, Word, Outlook, etc.)

3. Click the AutoMacro downloaded file in your browser (see image below) or navigate to your download folder and double-click the MSI file.

You may see a warning message. This is a standard Windows warning message that appears when trying to install software from smaller software publishers. You can ignore it and click "run" or "install". If you are running Windows 10 (or possibly other versions), you may need to click "show more" before the "run" option appears.

4. Open Excel and go to the Visual Basic Editor (shortcut ALT + F11)

5. You will be prompted to enter a license code. If you purchased a full license, you will receive an email from with the license code.

Enable / Disable

Once you install the software, you can easily enable or disable it from the Visual Basic Editor (VBE).

1. Open the VBE

You can use the shortcut ALT + F11 to open the VBE or navigate to the Developer Ribbon Tab and click "Visual Basic" (If you don't see the Developer Ribbon Tab follow these directions).

1. Open the Add-in Manager from the VBE Toolbar

2. Select the AutoMacro add-in and choose your desired settings.

If 'Loaded/Unloaded' is checked, the add-in is active. If you uncheck it, then the add-in is disabled. If 'Load on Startup' is selected, then the add-in will automatically load on startup. For the add-in to function properly, make sure both checkboxes are checked.


It's easy to completely uninstall AutoMacro from your computer.

1. Go to Windows > Control Panel

2. Go to 'Uninstall a Program'

3. Find 'AutoMacro', right-click on it, and choose uninstall.

Steve Rynearson:
Creator of AutoMacro

Over the years, I've spent countless hours searching online for example code and adapting that code to my needs.

I often found myself clicking the same links and copying the same code. I thought there has to be a better way!

AutoMacro is the ultimate VBA Code Helper! It eliminates much of the need to search online for code. Instead simply use the menus to select pre-built code or use the builders to generate code for your exact needs.

Additionally, the coding tools will save you time and help you develop more professional looking code.

For anyone coding VBA, AutoMacro is a life-saver. You'll code much faster, develop more professional code, and learn VBA much faster (if you're not already an expert).
