    VBA-Code

    I am working on this application that was originally created on VBA for MS Office products. Now...the challenge is to mirror much of the functionality of the original application but in the Palm environment. The question is...which is the best way to go? Are there packages out there that duplicate or mimic the functionality of VB/VBA to create applications or I have to start from scratch?. The original VBA code is not all that complex...boils down to a few ActiveX controls and some Excel crunching...but...where to start?
    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Re: VBA-Code

    A couple years ago I saw an ad in a Palm-oriented magazine for a control or add-in that you install in your VB environment that lets you target the PalmOS environment. Naturally, I have no memory of its name or developer. This does seem to be the best approach, rather than learning a new language. On the other hand, if your VBA code is rich with references to the Office object model, then a complete rewrite might be needed anyway...
