    Dialog Sheets and User Forms (2000)

    At the risk of sounding somewhat uninformed, I am wondering what would be the benefit of using a dialog sheet instead of a user form? It would seem to me that a user form contains every control that a dialog sheet could possibly contain. From what I can tell, a dialog sheet is essentially a worksheet with a user form in the center. Why even have this option of inserting a dialog sheet when right clicking on a sheet tab where a user form would be adequate?

    Dialogsheets are still there because of backward compatibility to XL5/95, which did not have userforms.

    You'll find that the Help on controls of dialog sheets is no help, it just gives you a link to "Hidden controls" or something like that.
    So if your application needs to run on XL5/95 as well, use a dialog sheet.

    Thank you Jan, I had always wondered what those things were there for!
