In a Word VBA application, I have a ListBox inside of a Tab control and I am trying to drag and drop files into the ListBox.  Inside of the BeforeDropOrPaste method, I put a simple MsgBox to see when the event fires.  Apparently, it never does.  I did the same with the BeforeDrag event and those events come through just fine.  What am I missing?

              , ByVal Action As Long _
              , ByVal Data As MSForms.DataObject _
              , ByVal X As Single, ByVal Y As Single, _
              ByVal Effect As MSForms.ReturnEffect, ByVal Shift As Integer)
