I'm using a 3rd party desktop application that has VBA inside. I would like to allow users to either a) make a log of their activities (i.e: menu items selected, buttons pressed, keys pressed, etc) or b) record their operations as a macro.  Is it possible for me to delivery this kind of functionality?  If so, what approach would you recommend?

Danny,

It depends on the implementation of VBA and how much the orginal developers exposed of the application.  I am finalizing an application which also embeds VBA and we choose not to implement macro recording because of the difficultly.

Your best bet for learning more on this is to register for the free VBA SDK from Microsoft (see MSDN / Products / VBA)

Hope this helps....
