Word 2010 Macros is the perfect solution for creating items like: tables, paragraphs etc, inside work for further use without use copy-paste from another document. Using Word 2010 Macros can be done by coding using Visual Basic (for programmers) or recording operations.

1. Open Word 2010 > Go to “View” < select “Macors” < choose “record macro”.
2. Name the Macro under “Macro name”.

4. Start edits your document, insert any item you want that can be used in future.
5. When done < go to “view” < “stop record”
