Office Mac 2011/Excel macros?

I've seen conflicting information about the new Office Mac release. Have Macros been restored to Excel? And if so, what language are they using? Has anyone tried them or tried to import Macros from Excel 4 or Excel 5 macro languages?

Ok, what about Applescript?

Will AppleScript still work in Excel 11 for Mac? or do you have to use VBA for macros?

Re: Office Mac 2011/Excel macros?

I've got an app written in legacy XLM4 macros. It creates both a custom menu bar and toolbar. It works fine under Mac through Excel/2004 and on Windows through Excel/2010.

Under Excel versions with the Ribbon interface (Excel 2007 and 2010 on Windows), the custom menu and toolbar show up under the Add-ins tab.

On the Mac under Excel/2011, the custom toolbar is created and appears as a floating palette. The menu bar is created but does not appear. It is not visible under the Add-ins. This is the same problem that I experienced under Excel/2008.

Does anyone have any insight into this ?
