Macro Basics

When you run a macro in Reflection 2008, Visual Basic executes the commands in that macro. (Macros created in other applications may use runtime applications other than Visual Basic.) A macro can refer to commands in other components of the same project. This means that a macro can run other macros, display forms, or execute user-defined procedures—if these components are within the same project.

Visual Basic projects that you create using Reflection 2008 can only be run from a Reflection 2008 session. However, you can export them from the Visual Basic Editor for reuse in other applications.
