Okay, bad analogy… I admit it. But it’s early and I’ve only had one cupajoe.
I was helping someone out with some VBA code in their Access 2003 database. (It was not a situation where moving to VSTO was an option, in case you were about to suggest that.) I was just helping them get something working. It’s really painful coding in VBA after years of .NET, not only the IDE experience, but going backwards with things like instantiating a variable (which you have to do separately from code to give it a variable). There are things I know how to solve, but the way I would go about it (the .NET way) isn’t an option and I have to find alternate routes. But, heck, it was a rainy weekend, and I hammered through it and put a big smile on the faces of these guys. 🙂
