    VBA in Mac Word Questions (VBA)

    Is there a Mac:X VBA equivalent for the FileSystem Object?

    For instance, in Word VBA you can do:

    <pre>Sub ShowFileSystemType
    Dim fs,d, s
    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set d = fs.GetDrive("e:")
    s = d.FileSystem
    MsgBox s
    End Sub
    </pre>


    I don't see how to do this in MacVBA.

    And then there's the ever present problem of converting forms from PC to Mac. The screen metrics are so different there doesn't seem to be any way to write on the PC and have a form look good when imported on the Mac. Is there a utility to help in this conversion?

    Thanks.

    I've never had occasion to research what kinds of OS scripting facilities OSX offers. Does Microsoft's Mactopia site cover development issues?

    I don't see anything on Mactopia that helps.

    Perhaps it requires writing code in RealBasic (which is a Mac language).

    I was hoping someone else had invented this wheel already...
