Currently Being ModeratedAug 1, 2008 7:32 AM (in response to Dr. HB)You baught a Microsoft's program and ask for help in an Apple's forum.
Is't it logical ?
Why not asking in : <http://www.microsoft.com/mac/default.mspx> ?

Currently Being ModeratedAug 1, 2008 3:25 PM (in response to Dr. HB)The 2008 version has done away with VBA but will be added again in the next major update cycle. You might want to find an older version (2004 for example).

Currently Being ModeratedSep 15, 2008 7:53 AM (in response to KOENIG Yvan)An Apple forum is the only place you'll find any help with this issue. Don't expect Micro$oft to give a flip about Mac users' complaints.
This is exactly like M$ to release software that ***** and has LESS FUNCTIONABILITY than the previous version.
Remember Vista? I do. Its the reason I have a Mac now
I guess we'll have to DOWNGRADE back to Office 2004..... Deja Vu, anyone?MacBook White 2.16 ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

Currently Being ModeratedSep 15, 2008 10:39 AM (in response to Dr. HB)To actually answer the WHY. The data analysis toolpack commonly available in previous versions of office for mac, and for all versions of windows is actually an VBA set of programs. Since 2008 on Mac dropped VBA support, none of those add-ins will be supported unless they (M$) decided to build it from scratch and added it to the core program itself. (unlikely)
