I have added a linked OLE object to a form and the source document is an Excel spreadsheet.  the spreadsheet is dynamic and will grow in length.  Can someone tell me how to have the rows set themselves automatically?  I need to set set a scrollable viewport for the data.  I tried adding a Vscrollbar to my form but all that does is scroll the entire OLE box.  How do I anchor the box and scroll the Data.

what you can do is  take the data fom the spreadsheet and display in dbcontrol grid which has the scroll bars.This should solve your problem.

Ajoy,

Thanks, but I already have the Data in a FlexGrid but need to keep and Display it in a Spreadsheet as well.  How can I make the Vscroll bar scroll the data and not the entire OLE object.  T

i notice in the sample you provided a start_click event.  Should I add a "Start" command button to my form that has the OLE object  and relate the code you provided to the command button's click event?

chdy,

I inserted your code into the form containing my OLE object.  When I click the start button I got a "Else without if" error.

I commented out the following:

 If chkStart.value = True Then
         Exit Do
     
      'End If and then got a "do without loop" error.  I can't figure out what the loop argument should be or where it should go.  Sorry to ask such basic questions but I am VERY new to this.

                     Xobj.Range("H4").value = hCount
             
             
         End Select
