Can you define:
" activeX enabled outlook message "
I have never heard of this.

Is you goal for the email to look like the Excel File?

If this can be done, it will be extremely difficult.

What version of Outlook are you using?

Outlook 2007 has more feature regarding "Data Collection" than previous version.
