Hi Experts

I have some long standing code that imports data from a Web source, I've been using it for ages and it works without issue. However I've started to use it with an existing workbook and when the data imports it shifts all the cells to the right of the worksheet, I dont want it to do this and I just want to simply over write the existing data. Anyone any ideas?

With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:= _
        "TEXT;" & strReport & "", _
        Destination:=Range("A2"))
        .Name = "CashForecastABI"
        .FieldNames = True
        .RowNumbers = False
        .FillAdjacentFormulas = False
        .PreserveFormatting = True
        .RefreshOnFileOpen = False
        '.RefreshStyle =  xlInsertDeleteCells
        .AdjustColumnWidth = True
        .RefreshPeriod = 0
        .TextFilePromptOnRefresh = False
        .TextFilePlatform = 1252
        .TextFileStartRow = 1
        .TextFileParseType = xlDelimited
        .TextFileTextQualifier = xlTextQualifierDoubleQuote
        .TextFileConsecutiveDelimiter = False
        .TextFileTabDelimiter = False
        .TextFileSemicolonDelimiter = False
        .TextFileCommaDelimiter = True
        .TextFileSpaceDelimiter = False
        .TextFileColumnDataTypes = Array(1)
        .TextFileTrailingMinusNumbers = True
        .Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
    End With

I see that you've commented out the .RefreshStyle property.

change that line to
.RefreshStyle xlOverwriteCells
