Excel 2013 DAO

I'm working in Office Excel 2013 and using the worksheets as a DB with ADODB.  I know the DELETE keyword does not work.  However, has anyone developed a workaround that could be part of a DAO to delete records from table.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What type of dataset type are you using?  The default is a forward-only snapshot, which doesn't allow updates to the recordset.  Try instantiating your recordset as a dynaset type.

The "official" method is to use automation to open Excel and delete the records/rows.
However, as you operate from Excel, it should be even simpler: Just open the worksheet as is and/or the Range in question and delete the rows.

But how do Identify the range?  I need to query somehow to get the row number without adding an id.
Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
It would be the same that you link using DAO.
