Trouble Identifying controls on an Excel Form

Hi, I have recently been approached to develop some automated testing for an application written in Excel with all the UI done using Excel Forms.


As a proof of concept, I put together a single form that contained all available Excel controls.


The trouble I have is, apart from the Form, Listbox, Frame and Tab Page controls, Test Complete is unable to identify any of the other controls on the form using Object Spy.


Is there any special configuration I can do so Test Complete can identify Excel forms controls?

    I believe, that you have MSAA turned on, haven't you?
