VBA is a pretty antiquated technology that was never intended to run on a server. As such, it would have been impossible to get it up and running with server quality without a total rewrite. We knew from the beginning that this was going to be a painful point for our users. However, in the long run it was the right thing to do. Had we tried to patch VBA to work properly on the server, we probably would have missed many of our deadlines and would have ended up with a subpar server to boot. Which brings us to the next painfully missing feature: query tables.

As an example, take the Data Refresh feature. In Excel, when the user refreshes the data, Excel will go and grab new data from the database back end. On the server, as described before, the administrator can place a limit on how often refreshes may occur.
