Refresh Data Query error

Hi,

I am trying to refresh an OLE DB query with some code.

I get the attached error whenever i run it my routine. The line of code it breaks on is

   Selection.QueryTable.Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False

I can phsyically refresh it on the spreadsheet, just not in the code.

Does anyone know why this is?

Thanks
Seamus

For Excel 2007+:

Sheets("Raw Data").Range("A22").ListObject.QueryTable.Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False

For 2003 -:

Sheets("Raw Data").Range("A22").QueryTable.Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False

And if all else fails:

ActiveWorkbook.RefreshAll

The sheet doesn't need to be visible/unhidden.

It's probably due to the Selection.  Try referencing the sheet object directly.

Heres my complete code, the sheet is called Raw Data, can you suggest?

Thanks

    Sheets("Raw Data").Visible = True
    Sheets("Raw Data").Select
    Range("a22").Select
    Selection.QueryTable.Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
    Range("a24").Select
    Sheets("Screen").Select
