Solved Excel Add-in Call up Access Query

Posted on 2014-09-02
Last Modified: 2014-09-02
In my Excel Add-in I want to see if there is a way to create a new Access Query so that the user just sees
the Access query and not the rest of Access. Is this possible?

    You should be able to use ado in your add-in and just open the mdb as a connection rather then an application then use execute and a dataset to pull what ever information you would like.

    I want to create an application where the user can build an Access query as they would in Access and then use the resulting SQL to pull data through to Excel. This is why it is important that the user sees the Access query designer

    Then no, since the designer is part of the Access application itself. The only choice is creating your own version of the Access query builder.
