Default remove Excel Toolbars using an ActiveX DLL

Hi all,

I'm trying to remove the Excel toolbars from within an ActiveX DLL made with VB6. I'm getting several errors, and I have problems with refering to a constant (msobarTypeNormal). If anyone has experience with this, your help will be much appreciated. Here is my code:

Public Sub remove_toolbars(wkb) 'wkb is the refered workbook, this works correct! ' Dim TB 'As what??? Dim TBNum As Integer Dim xlWorkbook As Object Dim xlSheet1 As Excel.Worksheet ' Set xlWorkbook = GetObject(wkb) Set xlSheet1 = xlWorkbook.Sheets(1) '''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' '''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
'clear the column
'Hide all visible toolbars and store their names
TBNum = 0
For Each TB In Excel.CommandBars 'here goes wrong
    MsgBox "TB = " & TB
    If TB.Type = msoBarTypeNormal Then 'does not recognize msoBarTypeNormal constant
        MsgBox "Test"
        If TB.Visible Then
            TBNum = TBNum + 1
            TB.Visible = False
            xlSheet1.Cells(TBNum, 2).Value = TB.Name
        End If
    End If
Next TB
Excel.CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar").Enabled = False
MsgBox "done commandbars"
End Sub

Thanks in advance

i found it myself. Set a reference in ActiveX DLL to "Microsoft Office Library 9.0", then type the following code:

If TB.Type = Office.msoBarTypeNormal
etc etc

The reference made sure that VB6 knows the constants used in VBA.
