I have some documentation where the client wants to use a circle shape with different colors to represent which toolset is used for their software. This is a large table with hundreds of entries.

What is the best way to enter all these circles into each table cell?

Copy and paste? Can I do it in a more structured way? For example could I fill in all the table cells with a single text letter representing one of the circles and then do a 'find and replace' on each letter with an autoshape?

Write a macro and bind it to a keyboard shortcut.
