MSflexgrid and scrolling

This may be an easy question....

I have created an application that is using the MSflexgrid control. I have created a "find" button that looks up data for a user in the flexgrid.

The lookup works great. i set my row and column by;

With MSflecgrid1
    .row = rowlocation
    .col = collocation
end with

This code puts a box round the cell I want but it does not scroll to that cell. (i.e if my data is of the screen, I have to manually scroll until I found my box that my find button found). How do I automate the scroll procedure so that it makes the row visible when I seek it?

There is also a .leftcol property which can be used if the column in question has been scrolled off the visible section of the grid. In combination with .toprow you can ensure that the cell is visible no matter how many rows/cols are visible.
