Is it possible to add a MSHFlexgrid control to an Access 2007 form?
If so what do I need to reference to get the control to show in the ActiveX list?

    MSFlexGrid is not supported in Access. That said, people do use it in Access, but it can give some quirky behavior.

    You would need the control to be installed by another development tool, like Visual Basic 6.0. If you don't own an environment like that, then you don't have the licensing to use the control.

    What about MSFlexGrid, is it supported? I am using it and find it to be quirky. If you or others agree that it is not reliable does anyone have a suggestion on how to get a reliable grid into Access 2007?

    Accepted Solution

    No ... and as far as I know, there are no grid controls supported in Access 2007. There are some supported in 2003, and those might work okay in 07 ...
