Is it possible to use macros in the Script Editor, and if so, how?

I've been reading the manual and if I understand it correctly, I cannot reference any macros to use their value. Is this correct? If not, how do you call a macro? I am trying to use the FAILSTEP_NAME macro, among others on the step tab in the script editor. So far, I am just not able to. I am following what I did on the 'Run Script' action steps but that doesn't work. Thank you in advance.

To access a (raw) macro value from script code:

Application.Macros(vbldMacroTemporary)("ABC").Valu e

or

vbld_AllMacros()("XYZ").Value

http://www.visualbuild.com/Manual/macrosproperty.htm

Or, to expand the macro's value (any macros or script expressions it references):

Application.ExpandMacrosAndScript("%MYMACRO%")

http://www.visualbuild.com/Manual/scripteditor.htm

In the case of FAILSTEP_NAME, it's more direct to just use the FailedStep object (FailedStep.Name) rather than that macro.
