Refresh DATA - Excel 07 ?

3 posts in this topic

A little back ground.

Every morning I have to Open an excel spreadsheet click Data > Refresh all.

A box pops up asking for my AD credentials.

Then updates the spreadsheet with the data.

I'm trying to script this, Short of mouse clicks and send commands.

Is there a "excel.object.data_refresh($server,$port,$user,$password)" command that I can use?

I too need this. I am also looking for a similar command to go to "Developer>Macros" and then choose which macro to run. My intention is not to hijack Nigma's thread, but any help would be appreciated.

Searching the Excel Developer Reference shows methods "RefreshAll" to refresh a workbook or "Refresh" to refresh OLE DB connection. Microsoft Excel uses the connection string specified by the Connection property.

So it depends how Excel tries to access the data. Can you provide more information?
