Refreshing Querytables in Excel

Refreshing Querytables in Excel


Can anyone help? In Excel I am using VB code to Refresh a query table to an Access Database. However, Excel will not redraw the spreadsheet with the external data unless I come out of the procedure. I need to do other things in this procedure after it gets the data. I am using the Activesheet.Querytables.Add method. All tips welcome!

Thank you in advance

RE: Refreshing Querytables in Excel

Sorry, no tips cause my refresh macro fine. Do you mean that you need two separate codes to first retrieve data and then manipulate it?

I take data from SQL Server through ODBC-driver. My code (recorded) is like this:
With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection......
.FieldNames = True
.RefreshStyle = xlInsertDeleteCells
.RowNumbers = False
.FillAdjacentFormulas = False
.RefreshOnFileOpen = False
.HasAutoFormat = True
.BackgroundQuery = True
.TablesOnlyFromHTML = True
.Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
.SavePassword = True
.SaveData = True
End With

...and same macro continues...

Good luck,
