    Office Mobile 6.1 - VBAable? (Office Mobile 6.1)

    Microsoft Office Mobile 6.1

    I worte a data-entry ap for a client last year.
    This year they want to run it on iPhones using Office Mobile 6.1.
    The MSoft web site seems to indicate that office Mobile 6.1 is a basic end-user interface, good for email editing etc.; I find no mention of VBA.

    Has anyone seen/heard that it does run VBA?

    From The Ken Puls Blog » Blog Archive » Office Mobile:
    <hr>With my new Windows Mobile phone came Office Mobile, including Excel Mobile version 6.1. ... Now, to set expectations, I was aware that there was no VBA in it<hr>
    So, as far as I can tell, Office Mobile doesn't support VBA.

    Thanks. Doubly-curious: How did you find this reference?

    >Office Mobile doesn't support VBA.
    Agreed. From my five-minute Google I didn't see anything that got excited about VBA on an iPhone.

    I searched Google for "office mobile" vba, and although it was the 7th result, it was the first one whose short extract seemed relevant.

    As far as I can see you need windows mobile so it won't run on an iPhone anyway?!

    Thanks John.
    I suspect that the client would end up spending 10x as much to rewrite the existing code as they would to buy tablet or laptop PCs to run the existing code.
