I have an excel sheet inside my VB application.  I need to make a drop down box for selections.
The code to make the drop down, according to the VBA inside Excel is:

        .Add Type:=xlValidateList, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator:= _
        xlBetween, Formula1:="=$A$2:$A$4"

Only problem, is inside VB, it does not recognize "xlValidateList" or "xlValidAlertStop" or "xlBetween"

It IS clunky having to use Excel inside VB, but unfortunatly i need it.

I have the following references:

* axowc11
* excel

What am i missing?
