I am using asp.net, vb and codebehind with a repeater containing an OWC spreadsheet and chart in the itemtemplate.<BR>What I want is when a user clicks a button, data is loaded into each repeater items spreadsheet and some formating is done.<BR>Then the spreadsheet and chart are made visible. <BR><BR>The problem is I cannot get a reference to any of the spreadsheets or charts. ie if I try to use the item and control properties of the repeater or the findcontrol method the objects dont seem to exist although I can see them in the browser.<BR>Is this related to the objects being activex?
