Is there any way to script a Google Docs spreadsheet?

I have a really complex spreadsheet in Google Docs, and while it works, having the ability to script it a bit (à la VBA in Microsoft Office) would make it a lot cleaner. I heard that this is doable in Google Apps, but I can’t find it in Google Docs. Is this possible? Or is this something only Office can do?

Answer

Yep its called Google Apps Script.

They just had a Apps Script Hackathon! They have some good examples and tutorials on the resource page. Someone also coded “Game Of Life” in a script 🙂

They also had a talk at Google I/O about it.
