That depends.

If it's Word 2008, then no, because Word 2008 does not support VBA.

If it's Word 2011, then the answer is "maybe", depending on what exactly is happening with this add-in.

Hi Matthewspatrick

Thanks for your response, the addin currently works with office 10 on windows and provides a linking mechanism to a SQL database for storing exam questions.  It effectively enables certain formatting so that questions can be written/edited and then imported into the database in the correct format for the database.

So, does office 11 for Mac give you the appropriate access to be able to tweak the VBA.
