View Full Version : mac equivalent to dll?

Jan 29, 2006, 10:24 AM
Hi every1,

I use a PC at work (yeah, I know it sucks... :rolleyes: ) and use Excel a lot. I would like to have the same functions at home on my mac, but the VBA code makes use of dll. As it would be inapropriate to write the functions in VBA (because of performance issues), I was wondering if I could compile some sort of dynamic library which I could use in VBA/Excel in the same way it is done with dll on a PC.

The Mac equivalent of a dll is dylib or maybe a Framework, depending on how you look at things. The real question is can you get Excel for Mac to use either of these?

or a loadable bundle, which is still a dylib, just linked at runtime.

As for your question, I don't know. You may need to get some sort of mac office sdk from microsoft.
