    Common Dialog Control (Excel 2002)

    Hi

    I am trying to create a userform using the common dialog control, I have managed to load it into the tool box, but when I drag it onto the form I get the following message.

    The control could not be created because it is not proplerly licensed.

    I would appreciate an explanation of this please.

    Thanks

    Exactly what it says: you don't have a license to use the common dialog control in your own applications.

    Fortunately, you don't need it. Excel has Application.GetOpenFilename and Appplication.GetSaveAsFilename to let the user pick an existing file or specify a new filename. And Office XP has a new FileDialog object that can be used to select files or folders.

    Hi Hans

    Thanks for the reply. and the information.

    The reference to license, does it mean a licence you need to purchase or is it an installation issue?

    The common dialog control has probably been installed on your PC with an application. It can legally be used by that application, but not on its own. You'd have to buy Visual Studio or something like that to get a license to use it in your own applications.
