Hide Gridlines in Excel Object on Access form

Hello,

I am trying to format an excel object that I have embedded in an Access form.  I have included the Microsoft Excel Lib as a reference to my project.  

Most of the standard Excel formatting commands work.  For example,        
      objXL.worksheets(1).Columns(7).NumberFormat = "$#,##0"
works fine for formatting a column to currency.

I can't seem to get the gridlines to turn off.  The standard Excel command is
    ActiveWindow.DisplayGridlines = False
Which returns the error: "Object variable or WIth block variable not set"

I've tried a few different iterations:
   objXL.worksheets(1).DisplayGridlines = False
   objXL.worksheets(1).ActiveWindow.DisplayGridlines = False
but none of them worked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
MikeMc

Hello cdmac2

If objXL is a workbook (looks like it), you can use one of:

    objXL.Windows(1).DisplayGridlines = False
    objXL.Application.ActiveWindow.DisplayGridlines = False

Cheers!

Hey Harfang...

Sorry for the delayed response.  The first one you suggested did the trick.

Thanks!
