Hi James

quote:I assume you mean that a user has to install the AciveX object on their PC, which means they can then call the class methods from a few lines of VBA code within the spreadsheet. Is that right? Have I understood correctly?
Yep that's exactly what I mean.

quote:If I write an ActiveX object, is that the sort of thing that we can sell commercially? Is packaging and selling AciveX objects something that is commonly done these days?
If you take a look at, say, an ASP developer site you'll see loads of people flogging components to do all sorts of things. These components are ActiveX objects.

At the end of the day only you know the ins and outs of what you're trying to achieve and why. I'm just making suggestions ;)
