    VSA (VBA/all/2003)

    I got a notice this morning about a webcast for Visual Studio for Applications (VSA) and was surprised that I had never heard of it. I did some checking and searches and found chatter in 2001 and 2002. Since then, there has been nothing.

    Is this the same thing as Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO)? Can anybody tell me what tools I need to be looking at for the next version of Office (12?)? I am so confused <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Re: VSA (VBA/all/2003)

    As far as I know, VSA was a working title, that was later abandoned in favor of VSTO. VSTO is the successor - in a fashion - to the Developer Edition of Microsoft Office.

    The next version of Microsoft Office will be Office 12 ("internal" name). We don't know yet what the box will say - it's due to be released in 2006, so it might be Office 2006. The development name is Bullhorn, I believe (cf the working title Longhorn for the next Windows version, also due in 2006). It is to be expected that Office 12 will sport a .Net-like programming language, but Microsoft has promised that VBA will still be available, perhaps for the last time.
