How Can I Use AppleScript to Insert a Row in Excel for Mac 2008?

Last Modified: 2013-11-08
I need to create a keyboard shortcut to insert a row in a spreadsheet in Excel 2008 for Mac. Since Microsoft stupidly removed VBA from Office 2008, I suppose I'll need to use Applescript, which I have never used.

I want to be able to highlight a row in Excel by clicking on it and then press a shortcut key that will trigger the script to do the equivalent of Insert, Row.
