Legacy EXTRA! Macros

You can run most EXTRA! macro files (.ebm) in Reflection, including encrypted EXTRA! macros.

Note: To use legacy EXTRA! macros in Reflection, you must install the Legacy EXTRA! feature when you install Reflection. (This feature is available on the Attachmate Installation Program Features tab, under 3270/5250 | Compatibility or UNIX and OpenVMS | Compatibility.)

To run an EXTRA! macro

  1. Open the Reflection Run Macro dialog box as follows:

    Reflection Ribbon

    On the Session ribbon, from the Macros group, click Run Macro.

    The Reflection button

    Reflection Browser

    On the Reflection menu, choose Tools, Macro and then Run Macro.

  2. In the Run Macro dialog box, click Legacy EXTRA! Macro.
  3. Browse to select a macro file, and then click Open. The macro must be in a trusted location.


  • If the macro contains unsupported objects, its functionality may be limited or it may not run.
  • For a list of unsupported objects and methods, see the Reflection VBA Guide (Help > VBA Guide).
  • Note: You can significantly improve the performance of your recorded EXTRA! macros by editing these macros to change how Reflection detects when the screen is ready for input. (See Technical Note 2483.)
