Hi Experts

I want to avoid using DSDatabase.edit for every change i make to an excel spreadsheet.

Is there a component (for VB6) that allows the user to change multiple records in an excel03 database file, on the fly.  (ie to edit multiple T/F fields in the spreadsheet,  as if it were opened in excel itself )

Many thanks

    Why not simply use Excel Automation?
