I see, you mean the actual

"OLE Container" object.

you cannot use the OLE Container object in a usercontrol.

the "OLE Container" will still be on your toolbox if you look but it will be disabled.

I'm not sure why you cant use it , and although theres a help button on the message box you get if you try to select the "OLE Container" there isnt actually any help associated with it.
