Sorry if this is a dumb question.

I am running office 2010.
Have the MS treeview control loaded on a worksheet, not a form.

Everytime I open the sheet it loses it's size, font and items.  I can scroll up and down and it comes right back.  I don't have anything else running in either workbook or sheet load.

My sheet is at 100% zoom.  I thought the listbox did something wierd like this and could be fixed with intregal height but...

Any help?

Thanks experts.

Did you use 2010 to create the workbook?

In my experience, ActiveX controls do not play well with Excel (and it is worse with 2007, 2010).

Note, that in Office 2010 64 bit you will not be able to use 32 bit third party activeX controls at all, they require a 64 bit version of those controls.
