> @Boris: Excel Services never supported VBA and Excel Services is not Excel (duh!). What exception are you talking about?
I don't care that Excel Services is not Excel. Microsoft sells Excel Services as an alternative for server-side automation of Excel spreadsheets and that is the only factor that matters to me. If they make an EXCEPTION for what kind of spreadsheets can be used server-side, particularly workbooks with VBA are not supported, I consider it a significant limitation that deserves to be mentioned.
I don't know a lot about VBA. All I know is the Excel spreadsheet I was trying to open used macros and I got the pop up window saying it's not supported. After that I searched the web looking for a solution to my problem only to find that you have to rewrite the macros in Applescript. I know nothing about scripting.
@Boris: Excel Services never supported VBA and it was always advertised as such. Please, educate yourself: office.microsoft.com/.../HA101054571033.aspx
** warning: *THEY* are toying with [officefan] and other "cute trolls..."
+ I imagine that [NotAnOffice08Fan] posted their comment whilst running MSO 2k8 from a 64-bit/8GB RAM VM on an Intel 8-core 2.66GHz Box...
--+ Which is to imply the likes of...
? What is the *best* platform? safest? stablest? powerfulest?
Could the best platform for Launching EXCEL.EXE be *from* an Intel-based Macintosh VM! (i.e. Parallels or VMware Fusion)
!!! multi-core+64-bit+8GB VMs !!!
** think about it **
if an MS-MBA decided MSO evolution of a foundation by BS developers would be quintessentially more efficient by championing a platform $implification..., MS could $ave million$!
They *could* reinvest $ome to improve the jack-of-all-mass-market WKS product.
Jeesh... Some Apps are only compatible in Java N x.xx.xxx.cyymmdd! And I bet there’re some that only work on a DEC Alpha!?
If you have a Mac, think of MS-OS's as a Sandbox --What's the harm of all MS Apps requiring their own OSB (Operating-Sysand-Box)?
I can't fathome why one shouldn't embrace the $implification... IFF they bundleth a *"FREE"* MS O/S VM License with each 'Mac-line' product...
The "Mac Followers" would be running their multi-core 64-bit/8GB RAM VM's and "PC Users" can settle for the SBO (Sysand-Box-Only) version!
(BTW, I tripped on this thread while searching for an Excel Fctn for XOR() --duodedohh MS!
-- Looks like there's nothing better than being able to write a quick VBA function)
Excel 2008 for Mac is a worthless piece of crap.
Thanks! You also saved my professional income! :-)
