I have throw out Microsoft from my world more than 10 years ago with the exception of one VM running a plain version of Windows 7 32 bits for HP stuff applications
and one installation of Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac (equivalent to Microsoft Office 2010 for Windows) to open legacy documents, everything else runs on macOS, Linux and BSD's.
Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac does support VBA applications, so may be it will work ...

I just tried to run the CreateRom macro and I get several errors.
I have replaced Set SaveAsDialog = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogSaveAs) by SaveAsDialog = Application.Dialogs(xlDialogSaveAs).Show
because the FileDialog does not exist in the macOS implementation of Excel but I still get other errors, it's late (3:24), I will give it a second look after a couple hours of sleep.

I had to simplify the script because the file dialog is a pain to use and mostly broken on macOS.

I have hard coded the filename as a quick and dirty fix (for now)
Sub CreateRom()
    Dim CreateFileName As String
    SheetNumber = Worksheets(1).Cells(6, 1).Value
    CreateFileName = "FDD240G:Users:sycote:grafik-" & SheetNumber & ".rom"
    Open CreateFileName For Binary As #1
End Sub

With this fix the CreateRom function generate ROM files identical to the ones you gave me.
Now I can correct the code and safely assume that the generated code will work.
