Excel icon not showing on container

I have a container object with 6 straight tables in it. When I go to the "Special Icons" on the Caption tab the Send to Excel checkbox is checked for all of the objects in the container ....however I don't see this icon anywhere on my container. (on a side not the "Special Icons" section is locked not allowing me to check or uncheck anything).

Any ideas?

Thanks for the reply.

So if you put your object into a container it surpresses the objects icons?

Re: Excel icon not showing on container

Container itself dont have facility of Export to Excel... (may be you can send all container object to Excel via macro) but individual objects do have their own special icons.

If you want to tick/untick them, need to go to properties of individual icon. The top caption is for Container itself.

Re: Excel icon not showing on container


Only if you supress the caption for the included object(s). Enable the caption of the included object, and your list of icons will become active again.

A container has no Excel export option.
