Hi,

We?re ?desperately trying to perform a task within MS Excel & MS Query.

Transferring data from Query into a spreadsheet is no problem for us.

However we would love to be able to create a Marco which - copies the value of an input cell within Excel,
pastes it into the SQL statement (or a Criteria field) within Query, update the query and refresh the spreadsheet.

We have attempted the above using our database but have found that the Macro fails when Run.

Can anyone help us with this problem ? (None of us here are ?clued up? with VB ? so be gentle !)

We have thought about using DDE but don?t understand this either !!!!!!!!!

The VB routine is shown below (we have made BOLD the first error line) ;


Sub Macro2()

    Range("A1").Select
    Selection.Copy
    With Selection.QueryTable
        .Connection = Array(Array( _
        "ODBC;Driver={SCO Vision ODBC};SERVER=bwt;UID=nab;PWD=katie;Hostname=bwt;ServerID=Informix;DBname=/u1/Strategix/db/tool/baxt;DBuser=;" _
        ), Array("DBauth=;DBoptions=;"))
        .CommandText = Array( _
        "SELECT ndmas.ndm_ndcode, ndmas.ndm_name" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "FROM informix.ndmas ndmas" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "WHERE (ndmas.ndm_ndcode='ADV001')" _
        )
        .Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
    End With
End Sub



Yours hopefully,

Having created the query once, you don't need to add it again so the macro should read:


   With ActiveSheet.QueryTables(1)
.CommandText = Array( "SELECT ndmas.ndm_ndcode, ndmas.ndm_name" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "FROM informix.ndmas ndmas" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "WHERE (ndmas.ndm_ndcode='" & Range("A1").Value & "')" )
       .Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
   End With
End Sub

This will use the value of the cell A1 to filter the returned data.
