VBA/AS guide now free

MacTech has made its 150 page VBA/AppleScript transition guide available online for free to aid Mac Office scripters who recently discovered that Office 2008 for Mac no longer supports VBA. Subscribers received the triple-size issue as part of their normal subscription, according to the publication, which received an overwhelming response after initially publishing the guide. "For months, MacTech worked with a team of VBA, AppleScript and Office experts from around the industry to create the most comprehensive guide available to aid users in migrating from VBA to AppleScript. Chock full of step-by-step examples, it not only helps people migrating from VBA, but is useful for anyone who would like to AppleScript Microsoft Office." Bundled with the PDF download, Microsoft's Mac Business Unit is sponsoring a limited number of complimentary subscriptions by charging only shipping and handling fees ($10).

    What a crock

    I find it a crock that NEW subscribers can get the PDF download for FREE, but those who already paid cannot.

    Businesses use incentives to sign up customers all the time - this is not a new practice. Call up MacTech and voice your opinion, maybe they'll cave and send it to you.

    If you have already paid (as I did), just email MacTech and ask for the pdf. I did that yesterday and downloaded it the same day.
