Agreed but it is very slow. In most cases - IMO, the better solution is
to migrate to OO whenever possible. In one instance, I had a complex xls
spreadsheet that used some complex vb scripts to obtain and parse
external data. I found that I could accomplish the same thing with
MySQL, PHP and JpGraph (beta).

I'm guessing but I suspect that many, perhaps most, people use wine for
browsing those sites that insist on IE (yuck).
