Stretch Assignment: (I’d like to include this portion of the assignment in future classes. I ask that you give it a try and provide me a short summary on your thoughts of adding this to the class going forward!)

Macros are little recorded sessions of code changes in Excel. We know scripting as anything trigger or event based that is recurrent. I ask that you create a script in Excel by creating a Macro. Your macro should ZERO OUT all of the data in the table you are using. You can call the macro, StartOfTheDay. You would run this macro, say, when you arrived in the morning to enter new data into the tables and purge the data from the previous day. Give it a try! Remember save your file as a filename.xlsm (if it includes a macro). If you’d prefer a different macro, just let me know the pupose of your macro in the comments section of your submission.
