Macro for multiple holes transferable to different parts/profiles

I'm new to macros and am trying to get my head around them.


I've tried to start with a simple recording to create 2 extruded holes but it keeps wanting to go into debug mode after asking to dimension the first hole. Can I get some assistance/pointers as to what I am doing wrong?


I am constructing them using a construction line, then splitting the construction line, adding an "equal" constraint and using this as the point to form the circles. I'd like to then run this macro on a different (but similar) part and it to cut-extrude the holes with the constraints recorded on the Macro.


What I'm hoping to achieve in the future is to be able to create macros for 2,4,6 etc equi-spaced holes on a relatively simple flat surface.


Once I can suss that out/where I am going wrong I'd then like to be able to do tabs etc, if indeed this is possible?

Thanks in advance, I've attached my falling over macro.
