Cannot set DataGrid's datasource property to ADO Data Control

I'm using Microsoft's DataGrid and ADO Data Control for the first time in an Excel VBA application.

I want to populate the DataGrid from an Access table via the ADO data control. I've followed the design-time instructions on MSDN :
1. set the adodc.ConnectionString and adodc.RecordSource properties
2. set dataGrid.DataSource property to the adodc control

The problem is step 2: the datagrid's properties window does not list a datasource, even though it is listed in the control's object library. I've tried to set the property at runtime but to no avail - this gives me the message "Method or data member not found".

Yes, from the additional controls list it's Microsoft DataGrid Control, Version 6.0 (OLEDB).

Stevbe: False alarm - I didn't realise that the datasource property is itself an object, so I was missing the 'Set' statement at runtime.

Still don't understand why I can't see it in the properties window though.

Anyway, it's working now. Have the points.
