Hi MacRumors-- I've been using Office 2008 for a few weeks, mainly for Word use. While I've been fursterated chasing it between spaces, I've found it, um, workable. Until today, when I decided to sit down to bond with Excel, since I'm off to resume working heavily with it Monday. Speed absolutely matters to me in Excel. I use it under extremely tight time constraints. Being able to not even glance at the screen or move my hands off of the keyboard was the main reason I began using Excel, and the only way that I can perform my job. Unfortunately, I didn't do my research before the upgrade, and now I'm suffering. With no Visual Basic, I am at a loss. Sources online mention the use of Apple Script and Automator to perform similarly. I am not familiar with either program at all. I ran through all of my macros I use mentally, and the most important ones (I can sacrifice the others if that's what it comes to... ) are so simple, there has to be a way to do it: Insert Row Remove Row That's it! I've gotten to the point where I was going to go buy VMware, Vista ( ), and Office for PC, but then I realized that I'm refusing to give Microsoft any more money after this. And their response that VBA will be in the next application is of no use to me, and only makes me more irate. So now I'm stuck. Can anyone help me figure out a keyboard shortcut for those two simple commands? If not, how do I manage this in NeoOffice? Can I? Thank you!
