VB6 - Send from MSFlexgrid to Excel issue

Hello all

I have this application where i want to export data from my MSHFlexgrid 1 to Excel.

I want to export the row ZERO with the heaters followed by the rows between row numbers from my 2 text box.

If Val(from_row)  = 100
If Val(to_row)  = 102
It will  only send to excel the heather row + row 100 to 102.

But with the macro bellow, it always do row ZERO to 102 even if i have the value 100 in my from_row textbox.

How can i fix that?

Thanks again for your help

Change line 19 to

.Row = R

And put back .Text since it's better code.
Martin LissOlder than dirtCommented:
Put a breakpoint on line 13. What do you see when you put the cursor on from_row?

If from_row an ActiveX textbox?

You should use from_row.Text for self-documenting purposes but it shouldn't make a difference in the result.

When i put the break, i see 100 and 102.

Before i used For R = Val(from_row) To Val(to_row), i tried like this also:
For R = from_row.text To to_row.text

But i was still having the same result.
Wilder1626Author Commented:
Thanks, i will tweak the code to also add the headers and then use your option.

If i just change to .Row. R, i don't keep the headers in the excel report.

Thanks again for your help
