For those of you who rely on macro’s in the Office suite of applications, news from the Microsoft BU released today, mentions that VBA support will be added back in when the next version of Office for Mac is released. There is no mention of a date, so it could still be some time. However, when VBA scripting does return it may mean that some third-party applications that rely on it (EndNote, I’m looking at you), will regain full functionality in Office. That’s a kinda, sorta, maybe of course. To be somewhat fair, Thompson Scientific, the makers of EndNote, have stated that a version of EndNote that will work absent VBA is in the works, but no release date has been set that I’m aware of. And to be honest, I’m not a fan of EndNote at all.
