Hello Ten2008

I haven’t seen CA Macro’s used often.
Recording a series of key strokes and replaying them
- sign-in script
- naviagation to a menu
- issuing a command

Another neat thing is you can use them to run a SQL statement and display the results. This might be useful for things like “What the total value of orders shipped today?”

But, like Phil says, they are rarely used .

    Even though there are better techniques now available, one of my clients preferred that we matched whatever style was already there, and so when adding a log file to a process, in addition to moving a lot of screen fields values to the file (existing) I had to move them to a log file also (matching the style). I copied the screen field statements, and because of their naming practices recorded the changes on the first line PLUS the cursor movement to position the cursor to the same spot in the next line where I startred recording changes to a macro called temp, added temp to the pop-up keypad, made the keypad "sticky" (so it didn't disappear after a "button" was pressed, and then click, click, click, ... click and I was done.
