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.

There are two ways to use macros in Excel:
    1. Use a macro that is already written.
     2. Write your own macro.

Sub InsertMultipleColumns()
Dim i As Integer
Dim j As Integer
ActiveCell.EntireColumn.Select
On Error GoTo Last
i = InputBox("Enter number of columns to insert", "Insert Columns")
For j = 1 To i
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlToRight, CopyOrigin:=xlFormatFromRightorAbove
