Hi

I used the following code (recorded as a macro) to import a table from an online SQL database
I want the user to edit certain cells and have these changes also happen in the database.

How could I achieve this?

Thanks

    With ActiveSheet.ListObjects.Add(SourceType:=0, Source:=Array( _
        "OLEDB;Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=Gnnn;Data Source=123.220.43.247,6644;Use Procedure for Prepare=1;Auto " _
        , _
        "Translate=True;Packet Size=4096;Workstation ID=USER-PC;Use Encryption for Data=False;Tag with column collation when possible=Fal" _
        , "se;Initial Catalog=psql"), Destination:=Range("$A$1")).QueryTable
        .CommandType = xlCmdTable
        .CommandText = Array("""psql"".""Graham2"".""Performance""")
        .RowNumbers = False
        .FillAdjacentFormulas = False
        .PreserveFormatting = True
        .RefreshOnFileOpen = False
        .BackgroundQuery = True
        .RefreshStyle = xlInsertDeleteCells
        .SavePassword = False
        .SaveData = True
        .AdjustColumnWidth = True
        .RefreshPeriod = 0
        .PreserveColumnInfo = True
        .SourceConnectionFile = _
        "C:\Users\User\Documents\My Data Sources\196.220.43.247,1444 psql Performance.odc"
        .ListObject.DisplayName = "Table__196.250.43.247_1411_psql_Performance"
        .Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
    End With
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Date"
    Range("D10").Select
End Sub

It *can* be done, but requires some significant VBA and Sql knowledge.   If you have another option, use it.

  Having said that - here is a reference if you are willing to start to learn it
