Combo Box-->>Format Control not displaying "control" tab.


Posted by Mark Gravelle on November 08, 2001 8:33 AM

I am having trouble formatting anything to do with the control toolbar. Specifically, when I select the Combo Box, and select Format Control, the next window should have 5 tabs (size, protection, properties, web, and control). I'm missing the CONTROL tab. But a collegue of mine goes through the same steps and he has the control tab.

I have selected all of the add-ins to see if that would help. No luck. So I'm sure my set-up for other toolbox options will encounter the same problem.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

This controls are called ActiveX controls, and are a little more sophisticated than the Form ones, to check their properties make visible the Visual Basic toolbar, and then click on the Properties button (Has a little hand), there you can change a lot more things than you can change to the form controls.
