Hi x-perts,

I need to incorporate interactive charts in VBA and am thinking about flash objects. as far as I know there is only a Shockwave Flash Object My questions:

1) How can I pass variables from flash to VBA userform and back? I could pass the info as a generated XML file from VBA to flash, but don't know how to do it on-the-fly. Can I pass flashvars somehow?

2) are there any other active-X libraries for this purpose (interactive graphics and charts)?

3) Is there a way of bridging Action script and VBA?

Thanks

Thank you! Very helpful!

All the referfences are for VB and #C. should I experience any problems with VBA For excel)?

I believe, as soon as I connect Shockwave Flash Object, it should be the same. Correct?

Hi andy7789,

There shouldn't be any problem, if there is it would be the code.
