We do need to know what you mean by MACRO and what you want to accomplish:

Macro has MANY meanings:$3281
In Visual FoxPro there is macro substitution: you assign a character string 
to a variable (e.g. asdf = 'Joe') the reference it &asdf which substitutes 
'Joe". Neat in that it can be used for commands, command parameters, within 
literal strings, ...
Then there are macro assemblers, macro biotics, macro lenses
In MS Office macros were the predecessor of VBA
There are tools for recording macros (recording user interaction via 
keyboard and mouse).
