I have a series of steps where I move around an area of the spreadsheet doing the same activity and I want to be able to replicate that using a macro.  For instance  - I go to a starting cell copy it down 2 cells, move over 3 cells to the left and 2 up, do it again.   When I use the recorder, the resulting macro will only execute the activity at the same location.  I want it to execute it from whatever location I start the cursor.   In other words, I want the macro to execute "relative" to the starting position, not "absolute."   Is there a simple way to do this?
