I am trying to create an Excel 2007 Addin that works pretty much like a MSQuery Connection. I have code working where I can get data from a saved MSQuery conenction but when done manually it creates the data in a table. When done with just QueryTable.Add I get the data but no surrounding Table or ListObject. I have tried creating a ListObject but then don't know how to connect the ListObject to the MSQuery Connection. I'll take either direction.
oQueryTable = moToolsExcelActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add("FINDER;" & sDQYTempFileName, oTarget, sSQL)
oQueryTable.Name = "QT Name"
oQueryTable.MaintainConnection = False
oQueryTable.FieldNames = True
oQueryTable.RowNumbers = False
oQueryTable.FillAdjacentFormulas = False
oQueryTable.PreserveFormatting = True
oQueryTable.RefreshOnFileOpen = False
oQueryTable.BackgroundQuery = False
oQueryTable.RefreshStyle = Interop.Excel.XlCellInsertionMode.xlInsertDeleteCells
oQueryTable.SavePassword = True
oQueryTable.SaveData = True
oQueryTable.AdjustColumnWidth = True
oQueryTable.RefreshPeriod = 0
oQueryTable.PreserveColumnInfo = True
oQueryTable.CommandType = Interop.Excel.XlCmdType.xlCmdSql
oQueryTable.CommandText = sSQL 
oQueryTable.Refresh(BackgroundQuery:=False)
oQueryTable.WorkbookConnection.Name = "Test Connection"

I think you can just use Listobjects.Add and specify the SourceType as 0, the Source as your connection string, and the Destination. That should automatically create an associated querytable that you can then manipulate. In VBA terms:

With ActiveSheet.ListObjects.Add(SourceType:=0, Source:=connection_string, Destination:=Range("$A$1")).QueryTable
        .CommandType = xlCmdTable
        .CommandText = SQL_here
        .RowNumbers = False
' etc
