      Unfortunately I have no documents to give, but the fruits of such an odd request may prove interesting…

      Do you know why he would want files with VBA macros?

      Is it about the Excel security patch bug?

      I’ve got a batch of right around 400 old Excel files, mostly from between 2005 and 2009, most of which are nothing BUT macros. None of them malicious, at least not by intention. They’re all my own work, so I think I can be pretty confident about that.

      It’s not thousands, but he might be able to lump them in with other batches to get what he needs. I’d be willing to provide copies on the understanding that my work and ownership be respected, and the documents not be shared out or used outside of the project he has in mind.

    Please follow the -Lounge Rules- no personal attacks, no swearing, and politics/religion are relegated to the Rants forum.
