I have an ActiveX spreadsheet object on an Access form.
I want to freeze the panes but can't find the right syntax for the object
Here's what I have now...
'---------------------------------------
Function CleanUpSheet(intRowNum As Integer, intColNum As Integer)
   
    With Me.Spreadsheet0.Object.Sheets(1)
        .Columns.AutoFit
        .Range(.Cells(4, 1), .Cells(intRowNum, intColNum)).Sort
        .Range("C4").Select
        .FreezePanes = True
    End With
       
End Function
'---------------------------------------


I get an error on the .FreezePanes=True ('object doesn't support this property or method')
I know in Excel VBA the command is 'ActiveWindow.FreezePanes = True' and I have tried a few different ways.

Thanks in advance,

Michael

        .Columns.AutoFit
        .Range(.Cells(4, 1), .Cells(intRowNum, intColNum)).Sort
        .Range("C4").Select
    End With
    ActiveWindow.FreezePanes        
End Function

or:

Function CleanUpSheet(intRowNum As Integer, intColNum As Integer)
   
    With Me.Spreadsheet0.Object.Sheets(1)
        .Columns.AutoFit
        .Range(.Cells(4, 1), .Cells(intRowNum, intColNum)).Sort
        .Range("C4").Select
        .Parent.Windows(1).FreezePanes        
    End With
   
End Function

active window (with or without the dot didn't work)
.Parent worked perfectly.

What is the best way to find the correct syntax for this activeX controls?  Now I am wanting to change line styles and can't find the correct properties.

the simplest way is to use the macro recorder.
start it, do the 2-3 things you want to format, stop the recorder, and look at the generated code.
will help you alot to find the objects to use (although the code as such is mostly unusable)

This works within excel, but the code doesn't exactly match in Access when refering to the activeX control (such as the ActiveWindow that had issues).

I need to be able to copy and paste sheets, change cell's background colors, etc.  I can do it fine directly in Excel, but in this case I need to keep things in the Access form and the activeX references/syntax are different

Angel,

the .Parent worked.  Is there somewhere I can see other Properties of the object so I can better learn how to handle my other formatting needs?

in office products (ie excel, word), open the vba editor, and use the Object browser (F2).
using the search command, you can find the object / methods ... quite easily.
with a bit of intuition + macro recorder to get an idea, most stuff can be solved like that.
