Commands for the OWC Spreadsheet?

P: n/a
I have been working on an app that uses a spreadsheet embedded on a form.
Data is written there so the user can see it in a familiar format and when
the data is ready to go, it saves the spreadsheet in an Excel format. But
my laptop at work does not have the same spreadsheet and efforts to register
the ActiveX component have been unsuccessful. So I intend to rewrite the
code to use the Microsoft Office Web Component spreadsheet (OWC ver 9.0, I
believe) which is available on both machines, but I cannot find
documentation for this component.

Does anyone know where I can find a list of the commands, methods, classes,
etc for this component?
Thanks

If I was going to start looking, I'd start at http://msdn.microsoft.com or
http://support.microsoft.com. I haven't used this one, and have to admit
that sometimes I think the prevailing view around Redmond is that
"documentation is for sissies". Some of what you want should be available by
using the Object Browser; often what you get that way is the only thing you
will find on "objects".

Thanks Larry.

I'll try the websites you mention, the Object Browser gives me migraines. I
wrote a lot of code using a spreadsheet embedded on a form on my home
computer. Everything worked and then I found out my laptop at work does not
support the component. I tried copying the component, license file, etc and
registering it with the regsvr32.exe and all that. It didn't work so I am
going to re-write the code using the OWC which I know both systems have.
Shouldn't be too hard if MS actually has some documentation for it.

Actually, there probably is documentation, if only we could find it. I've
heard a lot, lately, about people having better luck using Google to search
the Microsoft support websites than going there directly.
