Hi All,

I have an issue currently with the toolbox for user forms.

When I add a new userform in the vba editor and then select the toolbox so I can add some controls, the toolbox appears, however it has no controls visible. Initially the toolbox just showed 2 tabs "page 1" and "page 2" and both were empty.
I have since removed the 2nd tab..

I have tried selecting "Tools" and then "Additional Controls" to see if I could add from there, however despite it being and active option, when I click "Additional Controls" nothing appears to happen.

Can't find any fixes when searching for a solution

I'm lost.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

Have you looked on the tools tab at the reference library to make sure you have your forms object library selected?

Hi Dryver,
Thanks for the response.

I have just checked, and "Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library" is selected...

... To clarify... "Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library" was already selected and not the issue.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks again for any help offered.

Check you system to see if you have a file called VSFLEX3.OCX it should be in C:\windows\SysWOW64

Hi Fluff,

No joy. I can't find that file. Any advice as to how to rectify?

Thanks for taking the time to respond.

I'm afraid not. I can't find anything on the net either.
Maybe worth doing a repair & if that doesn't fix the issue, try a re-install.
