MacTech Article: Moving From Microsoft Office VBA to AppleScript
Moving From Microsoft Office VBA to AppleScript
by Paul Berkowitz
Apr, 2007 Issue
In this 150-page book, we'll show you how to get started with your transition from Microsoft Office VBA to AppleScirpt, help you through some of the challenges, and speak to you from a "VBA" point of view. In other words, we'll help you to understand AppleScript, and help you to start writing AppleScript as fast as possible. We‘ll do this, in part, by keeping your VBA background uppermost in mind.
While moving from VBA to AppleScript may be a necessity for some, the good news is that there are some advantages as well. The primary difference? AppleScript is the scripting language across the Mac whereas VBA is limited to Word, Excel and PowerPoint. With AppleScript, many other applications, and the Mac itself, will become available to you.
