    Any word on the future of VBA?


    G'day.

    Anyone have any good links/info regarding the future of VBA and timetabling
    for the transition to, I presume VSA.NET? I have been unable to find any
    hard facts, though presonally I would guess that the next "post-XP" office
    would be running VSA.Net... But hard facts (or at least some facts/official/not-so-official
    statements) are what I need. Any ideas?

    Cheers all.
    Paul

    Paul-

    Well, VSA is definitely the next step. And, from what I know, VSA will not
    be present in Office until after XP. We are currently using VSA in our
    organization, though. It is quite nice. . . As for releases, VSA is on the
    same track as VS.NET. It is, essentially, the same product. . .
    Unfortunately, I don't have any links for you.

    Does VSA stand for "Visual Studio for Application"? If so, does it mean
    that it is no longer a subset or byproduct of VB? Does VSA base on VB.NET
    or C#?

    VSA does stand for Visual Studio for Applications. Currently, there is only
    support for VB, but, as I understand it, there will be support for C# at
    some time in the future. I wouldn't say that VSA bases on either VB.NET or
    C#. It would be more correct to say that VSA is an engine (CLR, IDE, etc.
    .. ) that is currently only accessible via VB. If you notice the base files
    that the VS.NET IDE runs on have VSA names (search for *vsa* on your DotNet
    machine). And, one of the great things about VSA is, it exposes the full
    VS.NET IDE for your use and modification.
