RefEdit missing in my help files ?!

Hi,
I'm using Excel 97 SR-2 in French with the help files half in french, half in english, very messy when I use the search function.

Well, when I'm going in the Help, I can't find nothing about the control RefEdit...

Even in the section Microsoft Forms Object Model Reference - Control, I have the list of all controls in the toolbar, except the RefEdit...

And when I try to access "Visual Basic - Manuel de référence pour Microsoft Excel", I get a message error that tells me the help file has an error, I need to update it, and it gives me the error number 1036.

First, where is supposed to be the help for the control RefEdit in the Help File summary? And do I need to install another version of my help files? if so, where can I find it? I'm at work and I don't have the installation Cd of Ms Office and I typed "Help Files Excel 97" in the search box of Ms Office site and well...didn't find anything.

Re: RefEdit missing in my help files ?!

NOt your answer but here's the info you're after I think

RefEdit Control
See Also Properties Methods Events Example Specifics
On a user form, this control displays the address of a range of cells that you've entered or selected on one or more worksheets. To select a range, click the button in the control to collapse the user form, select the range, and then click the button in the control again to expand the user form.

If the RefEdit control is embedded on a worksheet, you can link the contents of the control to a cell on any worksheet in that workbook.

Remarks
The default property for a RefEdit control is Value.

The default event for a RefEdit control is BeforeDragOver.

You cannot use a RefEdit control on a modeless user form. You can use the ShowModal property to set a user form to modal.

Example
This example sets the control tip text for the RefEdit1 control in UserForm1, and then it displays the user form.

UserForm1.RefEdit1.ControlTipText = _
"The selected range of data in the worksheet"
UserForm1.Show
Later, the user clicks CommandButton1 in UserForm1. This example of an event-handling procedure displays the address of the selected worksheet range and then ends the program.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
MsgBox RefEdit1.Value
End
End Sub


OS: XP SR-1 & xl2k2

Yes thank you that's a part of what I wanted. icon_smile.gif

Is it possible to change the image of the button (next to the text) when we are in the userform? To have something like when we add a function instead of only "-" ?
