We need VBA development environment for Access Web Apps.
Macros in Access Web Apps take us back to the earlier versions of Access. If Access Web Apps is equipped with a professional VBA development environment then I feel the forthcoming versions of Access Web Apps can be a tough competition for other development tools being currently used in the market. There are a million VBA developers in the market then that for any other tool as of date. Please let us have VBA in Access Web Apps, we can really change the way Access has been criticized till date. We want to create more robust web based apps using the current knowledge we have on Access. It's possible if we have VBA in Access Web Apps.
We need a complete web development facility to promote our existing Access applications with little modifications to a hosted site apart from SharePoint site.
Thanks Manish for suggesting.
As George (MS MVP) pointed below, VBA is NOT a web-capable technology.

I would suggest that people use their votes elsewhere. This item is in the wrong area. It should be in the Access Web Apps area. Microsoft are not going to take much notice of 64 votes cast in the Access Desktop area for stuff which should be in the Access Web Apps area, surely.

How many times do we have to address this: VBA is NOT a web-capable technology. It's NOT a political or marketing issue. It's a technology issue.
You have a limited number of votes. Please do not waste them.

It's not really taking us back to earlier versions of Access, since macros today can use variables and are more powerful (not to mention table triggers)....even if I admit I nearly never use macros because I am too used to VBA ;-)
Alan Cossey commented
This ought to be in the Access Web Apps section.

I don't think they can VBA the Web. VBA relies on Windows Forms and expects to fully control the objects. What they can do is to move Excel, Word, Access to VB.Net and then we're cooking with gas for Web and Windows clients
FWIW ... VBA is not going to happen on the Web. Ever. It was never intended as a web technology. So ... save your votes for things that can happen. Let this notion go.
