    Re: converting excel macro into a google docs script??

    As I understand it (and I don't use google docs much), Google docs uses Javascript as its macro language. So, converting your VBA macro to something Google docs can use is as "simple" as converting the code from VBA to Javascript.

    If you are familiar enough with each language, then you should be able to do it by hand.

    An internet search for "VBA to Javscript" converter finds a couple of possible converters, but they seem expensive. I do not know how well they work, either.

    Your code looks like a recorded macro. I searched for "google docs macro recorder" and could not find anything useful. I found a couple of generic macro recorders (again they look expensive), but I know nothing about them.

    To sum up, if you are not already familiar with Javascript, then I think you are at the point of needing to learn enough Javascript to put the code into Google.

    Hi,

    Good question!! I find an answer on Quora..
    https://www.quora.com/Can-you-run-ma...-Google-Sheets
    There are links to helping with your question on the site above.
    The important sentence is:
    You can accomplish a lot of tasks with Google Apps Script but it is still pretty limited compared to Excel Macros.
    Just found another article to read for you.
