Does anyone ever actually use ANY MACRO that does ANYTHING more than 
move some data around the spreadsheet, or copy it to another sheet? If 
you use a MACRO to do anything more than simple stuff like that then 
you're begging for a simple typo to wide out some important stuff!

Also, isn't a MACRO (and I'm not talking about in M$ Orifice where 
MACROs are written in VB) just a script? Why couldn't you write and run 
a complete script as a non-privileged user??


It's all fun and games 'til someone writes to a NULL pointer!
