VBA to AppleScript translation guide re-released by MacTech

applescriptLast year MacTech magazine printed in its magazine a VBA to AppleScript translation guide to help people who had written Microsoft Office macros in VBA on the Mac only to find out that Mac Office 2008 will no longer support VBA.

Office 2008 is out and MS didn’t back down on their decision to drop VBA support, so existing macros will no longer work until recreated using AppleScript.

Need a little help with the conversion? MacTech has your back and has re-released the guide as a 150-page document that includes lots of detail and step-by-step instructions.

You can read the entire document online for free here, buy a PDF version for $9.95 or a get the PDF and a hardcover version for $19.95. Both include a free subscription to MacTech magazine courtesy of the Microsoft Mac Business Unit.
