Moving from VBA to AppleScript
MacTech Magazine will be releasing "Moving from Microsoft Office VBA to AppleScript: MacTech's Guide to Making the Transition" -- an extensive guide to help users make the migration from Microsoft Office VBA to scripting Office using AppleScript -- as part of an upcoming issue of MacTech Magazine.
The final version of the resource guide (estimated at 150 pages) will be printed in a special super-size edition of MacTech Magazine scheduled for the April 2007 issue available at the beginning of April. MacTech Magazine subscribers will receive the expanded issue as part of their normal MacTech subscription (i.e., at no additional cost).
For months, MacTech has been working with a team of VBA, AppleScript and Office experts from around the industry to create the most comprehensive guide available to aid users in migrating from VBA to AppleScript. Chock full of step-by-step examples, it not only helps people migrating from VBA, but is useful for anyone who would like to AppleScript Microsoft Office.
MacTech is normally $8.95 per issue on the newsstand, but... The Macintosh Business Unit at Microsoft is sponsoring a limited number of complimentary subscriptions. Individuals just pay a shipping and handling charge of $9.95 to receive MacTech monthly for six months. This only applies for new subscribers.
MacTech is available in limited quantities on the newsstand, and this issue will likely be in high demand. The best way to get a copy is to be a MacTech Magazine subscriber. You should place subscription orders no later than May 2, 2007 in order to start with the April 2007 issue.
