ObjectFrame.OLETypeAllowed Property (Access)

You can use the OLETypeAllowed property to specify the type of OLE object a control can contain. Read/write Byte.

expression .OLETypeAllowed

expression A variable that represents an ObjectFrame object.

The OLETypeAllowed property uses the following settings.

Setting

Constant

Description

Linked

acOLELinked

The control can contain only a linked object.

Embedded

acOLEEmbedded

The control can contain only an embedded object.

Either

acOLEEither

(Default) The control can contain either a linked or an embedded object.

Note Note

For unbound object frames and charts , you can't change the OLETypeAllowed setting after an object is created. For bound object frames, you can change the setting after the object is created. Changing the OLETypeAllowed property setting only affects new objects that you add to the control.

To determine the type of OLE object a control already contains, you can use the OLEType property.

The following example creates a linked OLE object using an unbound object frame named OLE1 and sizes the control to display the object's entire contents when the user clicks a command button.

Sub Command1_Click 
 OLE1.Class = "Excel.Sheet" ' Set class name. 
 ' Specify type of object. 
 OLE1.OLETypeAllowed = acOLELinked 
 ' Specify source file. 
 OLE1.SourceDoc = "C:\Excel\Oletext.xls" 
 ' Specify data to create link to. 
 OLE1.SourceItem = "R1C1:R5C5" 
 ' Create linked object. 
 OLE1.Action = acOLECreateLink 
 ' Adjust control size. 
 OLE1.SizeMode = acOLESizeZoom 
End Sub
