Hi,

Is it possible to hard code this sql query in a master excel sheet to run as a macro.

Thanks


select d.Recordings,r.Extension, r.LastName, r.firstName  
from users r
join (
      select u.userid, count(*) as Recordings
      from users u join calllog c on u.userid=c.userid
      where starttime between dateadd(d, 0, datediff(d, 0, getdate())) and dateadd(d, 1, datediff(d, 0, getdate()))
      group by u.userid
) d on r.userId = d.userId

select count(*) as TotalRecordings
from calllog

where starttime between dateadd(d, 0, datediff(d, 0, getdate())) and dateadd(d, 1, datediff(d, 0, getdate()))

Sheet1.QueryTables.Add(connectionStringGoesHere, Range("A1"), "select d.Recordings,r.Extension, r.LastName, r.firstName  
from users r
join (
      select u.userid, count(*) as Recordings
      from users u join calllog c on u.userid=c.userid
      where starttime between dateadd(d, 0, datediff(d, 0, getdate())) and dateadd(d, 1, datediff(d, 0, getdate()))
      group by u.userid
) d on r.userId = d.userId")

Of course those line breaks will mess it up
Dim con as String
Dim sql As String

con = "Provider=blahblah..."
sql = "select d.Recordings,r.Extension, r.LastName, r.firstName  _
from users r _
join ( _
      select u.userid, count(*) as Recordings _
      from users u join calllog c on u.userid=c.userid _
      where starttime between dateadd(d, 0, datediff(d, 0, getdate())) and dateadd(d, 1, datediff(d, 0,  getdate())) _
      group by u.userid _
) d on r.userId = d.userId"

Sheet1.QueryTables.Add(con, Range("A1"), sql)
This puts the resulting table starting in A1

Right, sorry. You either need to do
Set someVar = Sheet1.QueryTables.Add(con, Range("A1"), sql)
or just do
Sheet1.QueryTables.Add con, Range("A1"), sql

VBA is weird about the parentheses. If you use them, it wants you to do something with the return value.

If you don't have an actual Sheet1 object you can use Sheets("SheetName")
