Hi,
I have a simple web query that brings in data every second and writes to an Excel Worksheet. How do I pause it? So that I can look at the data for few minutes and then start it back up.

What I would do is add a command button to the worksheet that runs a macro which sets a global switch. Monitor the switch in the code that does the query and only do the query if the switch is set one way. You will need a DoEvents in the query loop to allow Excel to process the button clicks.
