AW: AW: vrf ActiveX Spreadsheet object

Question asked by detlef.baranski on Nov 15, 2005
Bingo
A function like " getting active cell " is missing in vxl.  This should be
an -ask for enhancement-thing for Vee 8 .
One quick and dirty solution is - use a macro in which the active cell is
written in a certain defined cell and then ask for this cell data via
VXL....aeh EcxelLib

Hmmm...  here's something I'd like to do, but am not sure how to accomplish
in VXL or the excel stuff of 7.5:  I'd like to open a spreadsheet, have the
user scroll to a cell, then let Vee know that cell so it can bring in that
row of data.  Can this be done w/o explicit activeX?

In principle I agree - this new inclusion is an excellent extension of Vee.
I've been using vxl in previous versions
