Hi all

 

A client has upgraded to Lion and Office 2011 for Mac.

The simple AppleScript and Word macros we used in Word X and 2004 no longer work.

 

tell application "Microsoft Word"

activate

do Visual Basic "Application.Run "general""

end tell

 

After searching the web, I cannot find if the "do Visual basic" command is still supported in Word 2011.

Does anyone know the command to call a Word 2011 macro using AppleScript from FileMaker Pro?

 

Thanks in advance
