I was blown away by the response of a pretty knowledgeable friend of mine to the question of whether anything I learn about VBA now will be rendered obsolete by Excel 2007. His reply:
"As far as learning VBA – don’t bother. VBA isn’t supported any more. If you want to program the new Office apps, you need to learn Visual Studio – specifically VB.NET. It’s a whole new ballgame."
Bizarre. He's authored a lot of books on Office apps, yet it's hard to believe this could be true -- I hadn't heard anything to this effect. :confused: Sounds radical indeed. Has anyone else heard something to this effect?
(By the way, sorry if the title of this post is a bit cryptic -- I tried to write "No support for VBA in Excel 2007?" but the ever-vigilant auto-editor bars using "Excel" in subject lines.)
