Supposedly, the next Mac version of Office will no longer have VBA in it.
I heard that, too. The current Mac version can also use Real Basic--I hope they stick with it. I'd also heard that they were going to use Apple Script. Since AppleScript can call scripts in Perl and others, there probably won't be much loss in functionality.

If I recall correctly, Micro$oft did not want to spend the time in turning VBA into a Intel native version.
I don't understand that. Actually the guy who told me wasn't real clear on why they were doing it, unless they're unhappy with Apple's new iWork. Seems odd--I started with Excel back when it was Mac-only.
