Macros are one of the most powerful features in Excel. They are small programs that can automate tasks and save you a lot of time.

If you are not familiar with macros, they can seem a bit daunting. But once you learn how to use them, you will wonder how you ever managed without them!

In this article, we will show you how to use the Macro "Calculate The Cube Root" in Excel. We will also provide some examples of how macros can be used to automate tasks.

## How to use Macros in Excel?

Macros are written in a programming language called Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). VBA is a simple language that is easy to learn.

You do not need to be a programmer to use macros. However, if you are familiar with programming, you can use VBA to create more complex macros.

For example, the following code will create a macro that will Calculate the Cube Root: ```Sub getCubeRoot()
Dim rng As Range
Dimi As Integer
For Each rng In Selection
If WorksheetFunction.IsNumber(rng) Then
rng.Value = rng ^ (1 / 3)
Else
End If
Nextrng

## About Calculate The Cube Root Excel Macro

If you need to calculate the cube root of a number in Excel, you can do so using the built-in POWER function. The POWER function takes two arguments: the value to raise to a power, and the power to which to raise the value. To calculate the cube root of a number, we need to raise it to the 1/3 power. So, the formula to calculate the cube root of a number in Excel is: =POWER(number,1/3) For example, to calculate the cube root of 27, we would use the following formula: =POWER(27,1/3) which would give us the result 3.
