Insert command for updating an excel spreadsheet
like this: Sub Change Table Styles() ' No Go in Excel 2003 Active Workbook. This is because you've just changed a built-in tablestyle. You might need to work with specific parts of a table. Best regards, Comment by: Jan Karel Pieterse (4/19/2009 AM)Hi Tom, You should be able to read information from a worksheet contained in an Excel addin without trouble. If you ask me, I find it strange that the Workbook is a tablestyles' parent, whereas built-in table styles behave as if being bound to the Application object. Here is a couple of examples on how to achieve that. Select ' Select just the data of the entire table . Post your code here and I'll have a look at the code. This article has also been published on Microsoft Office Online: Working with Excel tables in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) In Working with Tables in Excel 2013, 20 I promised to add a page about working with those tables in VBA too. On the VBA side there seems to be nothing new about Tables. Function Get Insert Row(obj List As List Object) As Range obj List. I've created spreadsheet which automaticaly calculates data, based on used values. Some fields are combo boxes, and I need to load data from a column into these combos. Column 2 contains a numeric ID(which isn't loaded anywhere), which I need to put in a specific cell when clicking OK in the form(this must be depending on what was choosen in the Combo Box). Let me explain When I open a new xls I have 3 sheets. I fill sheet1 with a table (5 x 2.) When I save the XLS to XLA the sheet with info isn't visible anymore and I can't use my formula, which was written in VBA, to reach the data on the inputted sheet. Color Index = 2 'White End If End With Case "Started" With rg Cell. They are addressed as List Objects, a collection that was introduced with Excel 2003. Select ' Select just row 4 (header row doesn't count! I am storing data in Excel 2007 tables and use INDEX function in excel to select required data from specific row in the table. How do I inicialize form to include proper items from a specific table into this combo box? thanks, Radek Comment by: S Srinivas (3/23/2009 AM)Created a macro for sorting the excel worksheet according to colour . Afterwardd when I run the command button , I am getting the following error. Now, when I load the contens of column 1 to my user form, I need to relate the Cell Y in Row X with Cell Z in the same Row X. I did some googling and this is what I've come up with. Dim i As Integer For i = 1 To 29 // I have 29 rows in my table If combo Box1. Altho in the VB editor I still see the 3 sheets in the structure.

Thanks Regards S Srinivas Comment by: Radek Kukuczka (3/26/2009 AM)Hi Jan, Thanks for the hint! How can I reach the sheets in the xla by a self written function or procedure? Converting a range to a table starts with the same code as in Excel 2003: Sub Create Table() Active Sheet. A collection of objects which are a member of the Workbook object. You can change the formatting of a table Style, e.g. But if you save your file, close Excel and open Excel again with the file, the changes are gone. Address Next End Sub This snippet of code works exactly the same in Excel 2003, so nothing new there (well, that is, in 2003 those tables ARE called Lists). Or what is the best way to handle diffrent tables or sheets in a XLA.
