After hearing from and talking to you during the Office Developer Conference this week, I realize that there is some misinformation or at least a misunderstanding about the future of VBA in office, so I wanted to clear this up.
Specifically, Microsoft is committing to ship and support VBA in office for the next 2 versions. That is the 2007 Office System and then the next version beyond that. In addition, the support policy is that when we release software, it's supported for 10 years after release.
What does this mean to you? VBA is not dead and we are committed to ensuring that the existing investment you have in VBA is realized and supported.
Hope this clears things up,
