User-Resizable Userforms in VBA, as an MS Excel 07 Macro

I have a user form I created for an excel 07 spreadsheet to manage my data, which is launched by a command button on the spreadsheet. It would be nice if it were possible for the user (me) to resize the form while running the program. In VB6 I am use to setting the "BorderStyle" property to "sizable", however there are only two options for the VBA userform and neither give the ability to resize. Is there any way to provide the user with the option of resizing the form?

I also noticed that there are no properties to set whether the userform has a min or max button. Is there any way to add those to the form as well?

Thanks.

Have a look at the FormFun demo here: http://www.oaltd.co.uk/Excel/Default.htm
It shows the code required for resizable forms as well as adding min/max buttons and some other stuff.
