    ActiveX control properties (Excel 97)

    I have found that Excel Help is very limited in giving information about properties for ActiveX controls such as Combo and List boxes. It gives a few very simple examples but is silent when it comes to some of the more obscurely named properies.
    Does anyone have any tips about where I can source this information?

    Re: ActiveX control properties (Excel 97)

    Hi Mike,

    In my opinion, if you are referrring to the properties and methods of the controls you mention, the best way is to open a blank workbook, get into the VBE and get your hands (or fingertips) dirty. To be honest, I have learned more (or remembered more maybe) from making mistakes and trying things out than from reading about it.

    However, I do find the help file to be fairly helpful to me. Seems I switch back and forth between the help file window and the VBE window fairly regularly sometimes.

    Also, many posts in this forum have some really neat and helpful information if you search.

    HTH,
