VBA on a Mac

In VBA & Macros for Microsoft Excel, we mentioned that we would post a list of gotchas to watch out for when you are using VBA on a Mac. Here is the list:

  • Application.ScreenUpdating doesn't work
  • Usersform - don't recommend using big labels. We have no control over the fonts, so it can cause a problem. Actually, the more we can avoid UserForms, the better.
  • ActiveX controls - do not work; have to use Form Controls.
  • No dlls. That means if you want to let the user lookup a file, you have to do it the hard way.
  • Functions: some VB functions may not be available - like Split, Replace.
  • Database files: not allowed
  • Best rule: Program as if the user has Excel 97
