To add ActiveX controls to a user form, find the control you want to add in the Toolbox, drag the control onto the form, and then drag an adjustment handle on the control until the control's outline is the size and shape you want.

Note Note

Dragging a control (or a number of "grouped" controls) from the form back to the Toolbox creates a template of that control, which can be reused. This is a useful feature for implementing a standard interface for your applications.

When you've added controls to the form, use the commands on the Format menu in the Visual Basic Editor to adjust the control alignment and spacing.
