Pressing a button in a macro?

So let me try that: ‹command›

There's one more thing I'd like to add to my custom slide, and I don't know if it is possible.

My custom slide opens a note and enters a keyword. On the Palm note screen there is a "DONE" button. Is there any way to "press" that button with a macro? That would return me to the Datebook screen, which is what I want. Of course, it's only one tap, but doing it in a macro is more fun!

Further reflections on macros:

In the past, when I wanted to categorize tasks, my Datebook entry might look like the following:
Textware:JRW: HTML report fonts

(When I was first working on the Instant Text Line Reporter, we referred to it as Journal Report Writer.) So here the client was Textware, the project was JRW and then there was the task. In addition, I might open a note, use a "left slide" to enter "DEVELOPMENT", and close the note. So I ended up looking at more than I wanted on the Datebook screen. By using a macro to enter category information in the note, I can clean up my Datebook screen and automate the categorization, with very flexible sub-categories.
