incrementation of scroll bar in decimal values is not allowed in generic control. You may design one control for that sake.

or for example if you want your scroll bar to go from 0 to 10 with .1 steps

Set Min = 0
Set Max = (10/.1)


Then on Value you could do:

msgbox (vSlider1.value * .1 )


Do you see how this is simulating the decimal values? Just an idea

Here is a working example, this example goes from 0 to 10 with a horinzontal scroll bar named HScroll1, it steps by .1 increments.

Private dblStep As Double
Private lngScrollMax As Long



Private Sub Form_Load()
dblStep = 0.1
lngScrollMax = 10

HScroll1.Min = 0
HScroll1.Max = (lngScrollMax / dblStep)
HScroll1.SmallChange = 1
HScroll1.LargeChange = 2


End Sub

Private Sub HScroll1_Change()
Dim dblValue As Double
dblValue = HScroll1.Value * dblStep

MsgBox "The Value is really: " & dblValue
End Sub
