Hi Scott -
I went through the documentation but, from what I could understand, it is a way of invoking a spreadsheet, and even a part of a sheet, bot not a  component as the 3d maps, using data that resides on a query (and a predefined map, of course), which is what I need,

Please let me know if I am wrong. If not, that I mus try to look for another option

Thanks for the help!!!!!

I really need to change my IDE. would you recommend anything in the line of ECLIPSE?
Scott McDaniel (EE MVE )

I don't know anything about Eclipse, so could not speak to that. If you're going to continue working with Access, however, you don't have any choice other than the Access environment. You cannot program Access outside of the Access environment.

Personally I find Visual Studio to be a great IDE. The Community Editions are free and are more than robust enough for the average one-man shop.
Experts Exchange is like having an extremely knowledgeable team sitting and waiting for your call. Couldn't do my job half as well as I do without it!
