Thanks, Chris, but the macro was part of a bigger constellation:

So? Use my macro as an example, tear it apart and use the relevant bits.

I think it does what you wanted.


My macro evaluates the client’s name. In yours, I have to select the category.

Ah, so. My mistake.

I misinterpreted what you were doing and read “needed” as “need”.

Thanks for clarifying. That was not clear in your OP, especially since you uploaded it to the Questions & Suggestions. Macros you want to share are usually uploaded to the Macro Library category. I have moved it for you this time.
