I am running Excel 2000. In an earlier version of Excel I found in Control Toolbox- More Controls -a control to allow serial communication with an active cell. It placed a Telephone Icon on the worksheet and under properties you could setup which comm port you wanted and the baud rate etc....Does anyone know if this control has been removed from 2000 or has it been given a new name.
