I can't for the life of me figure out how to programmatically set the multiline property of a text box.

Here's what I have.....Multiline isn't working, although in the textbox properties it is a valid property

Any ides?


Sub Insert_txt()
Dim txt As OLEObject

Set txt = Me.OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:="Forms.TextBox.1")
        With txt
            .Left = activecell.Offset(0, 1).Left
            .Height = activecell.RowHeight * 5
            .Name = activecell.Address
            '.MultiLine = True
        End With
End Sub

This worked for me. Btw Excel didn't like Me.
Sub Insert_txt()
Dim txt As OLEObject

Set txt = ActiveSheet.OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:="Forms.TextBox.1")
        With txt
            .Left = ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Left
            .Height = ActiveCell.RowHeight * 5
            .Name = ActiveCell.Address
            .Object.MultiLine = True
        End With
End Sub
