Default FlexGrid and Left Justifying the Columns


I'm using MSFLXGRD in my application. There is a property called StringFormat that it looks like I cna use to set the justification of all the columns in the Grid. For some reason, my Help won't come up when I click on it. So my question is, How can I left justify all the colmns in a FlexGrid? It looks like it left justifies strings and right justifies text. My problem is addresses. Suppose the address it "1234 Main St." Because it thinks it's a number, it right justifies. But because it IS a string, it pads with blanks at the end. So it "looks" like it is center justified. How can I force it to left justify? Thank you.

:( It's been 5 days and no reply. I sure need help with this folks. I tried LSET on the strings, but it just came out blank.

Here is the code I tried.

Addresses.Col = 5
Address = Kansas.GetASCIIRowValue(ADDR, Rows)
LSet Address2 = Address
Addresses.Text = Addresses2

This will left justify all your columns:

    With MSFlexGrid1
        Dim k As Long
        For k = 0 To .Cols - 1
            .ColAlignment(k) = flexAlignLeftCenter
    End With
