I know this is an old post but hoping you are still around.

Recently got a P900 and for the life of me cannot figure out macro.

What exactly do you mean by this? Using P mode, set focus to macro and keep an eye on the green/white focus bar."

OK I get P mode but have no idea how to set focus.

Welcome MrFraggle 67. Thankfully, by His Grace, I'm still around.

My recommendation is to download the manual from Nikon. Nikon | Shop & Explore Cameras, Lenses, and Accessories (nikonusa.com)

The easiest way to shoot macro is to use the Scene mode Close-up.  You can use Program mode as in the original post & use Macro focus, keep the zoom range in the green range switch focus to manual.

Hope this helps:
