Re. ActiveX Application Documents & regular apps

Hi,
We are attempting to place an existing VB application onto the company's intranet page (all IE setup).  The incomplete information I have claims that I can just add the app to an ActiveX Application Document for use on an intranet (using version 6.0).  Is this possible and how can I get the Document to recognize the standard forms (we hope to have the regular app be executed from the Document window - over top as it were)?  Whenever I try to reference the opening form of the std app it doesn't recognize the .show method.  I don't know how to code that link.  Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

As far as I understand it, having experimented a while ago with ActiveX docs, you cant use standard forms... you need to replace each form with a document.

Beyond that you only need to modify a small amount of code (many of the forms' events and properties are available as properties of the document but not all).

I'm not sure this will help, but you can try if you haven't already-

frmName.show vbModal


I don't know if ActiveX documents allow forms, but Controls do as long as they are Modal and not Modeless.  This means that the user must exit from the form before they can do anything else.

Perhaps you could try using a Control instead of a Document?
