When you try to reference the properties of an ActiveX control on a form from the Expression Builder, the properties of the ActiveX control do not appear in the list of available form controls.


ActiveX control properties do not appear in the Expression builder.


This behavior is by design.


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. Open the sample database Northwind.mdb.
  2. Create a form not based on any table or query in Design view.
  3. On the Insert menu, click ActiveX Control.
  4. Select Calendar Control in the "Select an ActiveX Control" list box, and then click OK.
  5. In the ActiveX Control property box, select an event property, and then click the Build button to open the Expression Builder.
  6. In the Expression Builder, note the controls that are available for the form you created in Step 2. The Calendar Control you created does not appear in the list.


For more information about using the Expression Builder, search on "Expression Builder," and then "Use the Expression Builder."
