    How to zip files in MAC in VBA macro

    Hiii All,

    I am looking for a VBA macro code where we have CSV files and an empty zip file. We need to add the csv files to the zip file. The code need to work for MAC. (Able to achieve for WINDOWS) We cannot use AppleScriptTask funstion as we cannot use a different scipt file. Please suggest if there is any other alternative.

    WINDOWS code that works:


    Set App = CreateObject("Shell.Application")

    App.Namespace(ZIPFILEPATH).CopyHere csvFileName

    Unless Excel for Mac has the equivalent of Excel for Windows's Shell function, you may not be able to do this.

    If Excel for Mac has Shell, you could use that to issue terminal commands from VBA, and I'm certain Macs come with either zip or gzip commands.

    If you can't use 'external' commands for Macs, realize that CreateObject("Shell.Application") uses VBScript/Windows Script Host facilities which are NOT part of Excel/Office but part of Windows. If you can't do the same on Macs, that is, use parts of macOS, then you simply won't be able to do as much on Macs as you can do on Windows.
