Microsoft Office Spreadsheet 9.0 control in Access - problem

I have loaded this control twice and also reloaded Access entirely.  I still encounter the same error message.

I activate a NEW MDB program and create a NEW FORM.  From the toolbox' long list of available controls I choose the MS Office Spreadsheet 9.0 control and apply it to the new form.   I run the form - everything looks good - but when I press the toolbox icon located on the MS Office Spreadsheet control I receive the Spreadsheet Property Toolbox form with the 5 small icon areas X'd in red.

Simultaneously an Internet Explorer Script Error window opens saying "An error has occured in the script on this page."  
The message continues with:
   Line 14
   Char 1
   Error: Object Expected
   Code 0
   URL  its:C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~2\Office\1033\msowc.sll::/webxl/pbwebcalcrt.htm
   Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

What am I doing wrong - or what did I not do?  I'll appreciate your help since I would like to use this control.

This is a Web Component ... it would have to be run from within an instance of IE (which Access opens for you) ... instead, if you need a spreadsheet, consider using the Excel object (it's there in the same area where you found this control). You'll have a lot more control, and the spreadsheet component doesn't expose near the object library as does Excel.

Thanks very much for your explanation.  I will try to get into loading the Excel spreadsheet instead.
