I'am looking for a solution on how to display an excel worksheet as child form in a VB6 MDI application
and if the user makes a change in the excel worksheet and does not want to save the changes to that
spreadsheet, when the VB6 MDI application closes the excel worksheet unloads properly when the VB6 MDI application closes.

you could open the excel sheet inside an OLE container that is placed on a MDI Child form.
from VB, you can then access the excel spreadsheet via the olecontainer's document property
