If I created some example macro tools in a language, do folks think the largest number of Genealogy folks that might try their hand at 7 or 8 line macros would prefer C## or VB? My guess was VB, but I really have no idea anymore since C has become so easy to use. There are so many docs out for VB, and people are kind of used to it because of Word and Excel Macros, so would the largest audience be possible with VB macros? -[[User:Phlox|<span style="font-family:Trebuchet MS">''<font color="#0A9DC2">''~''</font>'''''&nbsp;<font color="#0DC4F2">Ph</font><font color="#3DD0F5">l</font><font color="#6EDCF7">o</font><font color="#9EE8FA">x</font>'''</span>]] 06:36, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

If I created some example macro tools in a language, do folks think the largest number of Genealogy folks that might try their hand at 7 or 8 line macros would prefer C## or VB? My guess was VB, but I really have no idea anymore since C has become so easy to use. There are so many docs out for VB, and people are kind of used to it because of Word and Excel Macros, so would the largest audience be possible with VB macros? Any and all opinions/ wild ass guesses welcome. -~ Phlox 06:36, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
