Hi all

I am currently creating a spreadshhet using SQL as my datasource i have imported the data and set it to refresh on open and users can also perform a background refresh.

The problem that i am having is when i have imported the data and sized the columns appropriatly everytime i refresh the data the formating i placed on the sheet is lost, is there a way to prevent this from happening?

There is a way :

click on a data cell
click on "Properties" in the data - connections tab
remove the ticks for  'keep cell formatting' and 'adjust column widht'

are you doing via vba? try using cell.value i.e, sheet1.cell(x,y).value ="123456" instead of sheet1.cells(x,y)="123456"
