OLE SizeMode not working when control is activated

OLE SizeMode not working when control is activated

(OP)
Hi,

Can someone advise how I get the XLS embedded object when activated to zoom to fit the control?

I have

CODE

Me.Office.SizeMode = acOLESizeStretch 

Which works fine with the preview (icon) display, but when the OLE object is activated , the active frame is smaller than the object frame.

Here is a screen shot of what I mean...



1 = Unbound OLE object frame
2 = Activated XLS loaded into OLE object

As you can see the "thumbnail" (2) displays correctly stretching the content of the underlying document to fit the object frame, but any XLS that is smaller (1), activates in a small frame.

What's bizarre is if I minimize the DB, say to view this browser session, when I go back to the DB the frame has resized itself?



How do I get the activate frame to resize to the containing OLE object frame?

Thanks,
1DMF

oops just noticed I got the (1) & (2) the wrong way round in that sentence and it seems 'Edit' is on a timer?
