Yes, it does. So the only step forward is for the FLOSS community (LO/AOO/etc) to SOLVE it. Some automated tool to convert Macros from VBA to BASIC has to be implemented, otherwise this will ALWAYS be an obstacle. Quoting the article on the Toulouse migration to LibreOffice you posted in another email: "Exemptions were granted to allow some staff to keep Microsoft Word on their desktops together with LibreOffice [...] The exemptions were given because some Word macros and sophisticated Excel files could not be reproduced in LibreOffice or other open source productivity suites."
