    To my knowledge (happy to be corrected), there was no VBA (i.e. macro) support for Office 2008 for Mac.

    I believe it's been re-instated for Office 2011.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    The "fix" is as advised by mrplow. Buy Office 2011. VBA has been reinstated.
