Hi Experts,

For Excel programming, I use VBA, but will this work on a MAC (I don't have a MAC to test)?

Excel 2011 definitely supports VBA (Please note that in Excel 2008 MS tried to use AppleScript, but they later come back to VBA).
There will be some differences for system specific objects (such as Application), but worksheet, workbook object should be the same.
Ron de Bruin (Excel MVP) has started working on the list of differences. Use this informations as a reference only, as there could be more differences

Are you aware that there are applications like Parallels Desktop for MAC that allow you create virtual MS Windows machines (VMs) on the MAC in which you can seamlessly run all your normal PC apps?
