VBA
 

Hi.
I have Excel 2013 and I program with VBA.
Anyone know if VBA would be in the latest versions of Excel?
In version 365, macro automation creates Typecript code.
VBA works in the latest version.
Regards.

MS cannot possibly drop support for VBA -- too much code out there
relies on it.

They may choose to feature something else, but it can't go away.

I have 365 here. I can say for sure that VBA is included, and there aren't
any notes or anything saying things like "deprecated" or "do not use".

Thanks guys for the reply!

Auric, if you create a macro in 365, what code does it generate?
VBA or Typescrip?

VBA, when recording a macro. The editor is still the normal VBA editor, and
doesn't support any other language AFAICT. I don't even know where/how to
look for typescript. Searching the help system returns no relevant results.

VBA is the only thing that keeps me on "modern" Excel. If they remove it,
I'll probably drop back to Office 2007. Or maybe 2000, the majority of my
code runs there.

....I might do that anyway.

I've been using Excel 2000 almost exclusively since 2000 or whenever it
first appeared. I've occasionally had to use a more "modern" version of
Excel and haven't liked it - I can't adjust to that ribbon.

VBA with Excel 2000 seems to do everything I need, and I am not aware of
any new feature in VBA in the more recent Excel versions from which I
could benefit. Can anyone provide a good reason for upgrading?

Only if you want to open spreadsheets in the .xlsx format.

I only upgraded to 2007 because my ex-sister-in-law gave me her old copy,
when she upgraded to... uh... whatever the next version was. I have 365 now
for various reasons.

About VBA
 
VBA is not as dead as you think.

In 2020, VBA still shows twice as much interest as a popular programming language that can be used to automate Excel. (The most loved programming language is Rust. VBA shows 7 times the level of interest as Rust.)

Regards,
Jerry
