Return Value

Microsoft Excel worksheet for this design table


Do not use this method and IDesignTable::Attach in the same macro. Using IDesignTable::EditTable2 is preferable because it returns a pointer to the Microsoft Excel worksheet being operated on.


To avoid problems with zooming, set bNewWindow to True.


You can change the parameter values in the cells, add rows for additional configurations, or add columns to control additional parameters.


If the return value of this method is assigned to a variable, then it must be released before closing the design table with IDesignTable::UpdateTable(type, True).
