    MSDATGRD.OCX problem in Windows 10 from Outlook form 2016 with VBA

    Hi All
    I've a project written in VBA in OUTLOOK 2010.
    This project uses a UserForm with a DataGrid ActiveX Control 6.0 (SP6).
    The OCX is MSDATGRD.OCX.
    Now we have to pass everything to Windows 10 with Outlook 2016 and the ocx doesn't work anymore.
    I tried different solutions but seems it can not be registerd correctly (we've already registered it and de-register with regsvr32...).

    msdatgrd.ocx is too old, I know.... Which is the equivalent gridView that I can use in VBA in a UserfForm under Windows 10 without any problems?

    Thanks. Gandalf

    Re: MSDATGRD.OCX problem in Windows 10 from Outlook form 2016 with VBA

    Do you have the other files that it requires installed also?

    ; Dependencies for MSDatGrd.ocx

    ; Default Dependencies ----------------------------------------------

    [MSDatGrd.ocx]
    Dest=$(WinSysPath)
    Register=$(DLLSelfRegister)
    Version=6.1.97.82
    Uses1=ComCat.dll
    Uses2=MSStdFmt.dll

    Uses3=
    CABFileName=MSDatGrd.cab
    CABDefaultURL=http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vb6
    CABINFFile=MSDatGrd.inf
    There may be others depending on the locale
    see MSDATGRD.DEP for full info

    Question Re: MSDATGRD.OCX problem in Windows 10 from Outlook form 2016 with VBA

    Thanks DataMiser, I have this:
    Code:
    ; Dependencies for MSDatGrd.ocx
    
    ; Default Dependencies ----------------------------------------------
    
    [MSDatGrd.ocx]
    Dest=$(WinSysPath)
    Register=$(DLLSelfRegister)
    Version=6.1.98.16
    Uses1=ComCat.dll
    Uses2=MSStdFmt.dll
    Uses3=
    CABFileName=MSDatGrd.cab
    CABDefaultURL=http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vb6
    CABINFFile=MSDatGrd.inf
    
    [ComCat.dll]
    Dest=$(WinSysPathSysFile)
    Register=$(DLLSelfRegister)
    Uses1=

    Both (ComCat.dll and MSStdFmt.dll )are under my C:\Windows\SysWOW64
    Instead I have only the ComCat.dll under C:\Windows\System32

    That is a bit confusing as worded. I assume you are saying that both files are in the one folder and only the one file is in the other, if so then that would appear to be normal.

    I should probably also ask where you tried to register the ocx. It should be in the Syswow64 folder.

    I registered msdatdrg.ocx in SysWow64.
    The others 2 dll were already in the folder.
    Even though the registration has done correctly I can't see the component in the toolbox panel.
    Thanks.

    Re: MSDATGRD.OCX problem in Windows 10 from Outlook form 2016 with VBA

    The problem now is that I can choose the reference on the "Reference menu", but when I try to insert in a user form the ocx I cannot see it on the menu/ additional controls.
    Neither Microsoft DataGrid Control nor Microsoft FlexGrid Control and also the ListView Control...in the case I would change with another control.
    Why I can't see these controls on the toolboox "Addictional controls"?

    No idea, I have never worked in VBA through outlook, I don't use Outlook 2016 nor Windows 10 so aside from making sure the control is properly registered can't be of much help there.
