Edit Query Using Query Wizard

Apr 25, 2006

I created an Ms Excel Database Query to bring in data from MS Access. (versions 2002 of MS Excel and Ms Access). The query works fine initially. I can right click, choose Edit Query and change my criteria. Results are returned almost instantly.

My problem is that, once I save the workbook, or autosave happens, I get an error when I right-click to Edit Query: This query cannot be edited by the Query Wizard..

Edit Web Query - Get Data From Web

May 10, 2014

i have a worksheet that gets data from web - its automated, but the website goes through a tunnel - with security - requires username and password

the Query Runs ok and smooth but i have to login manually by right clicking on a table where the query is and selecting "Edit Query" so i can login, excel vba doesnt save passwords for that part...

one way i find it possible to automate that part too would be to use maybe like the sendkeys statement to pop up the context menu from right clicking the mouse button, or like the options button on the keyboard.

I found this one:

[Code] .....

It works but the context menu comes exactly from where the current mouse position is..

I needed it to do the right click on a specific range in the worksheet (where the web query is)..

Pass Parameter From Excel Through MS Query To MS Access Query

Nov 26, 2012

I have an MS Access query that contains a parameter. The parameter is a date field, and I have configured that in the Access query. If I run the query within the MS Access user interface, it prompts me for the paramater value as expected, and runs just fine. However, I want to connect to this query from within Excel as a data source.

I have created a connection to the Access file using ODBC from within Excel. In the MS Query window, I am merely selecting all of the fields resident in the MS Access query, and returning all values. In other words, there is no selection criteria in the MS Query. I have done this many times with Access queries that DO NOT contain a parameter, and everything works fine. However, in this instance, I need to pass a parameter through to MS Access in order for the query to run. At the moment, I get the "Too Few Paramaters...1 expected" error message. This makes sense, because I haven't figured out how to pass the paramater to MS Access.

Is there a way to structure this that does not involve VB code? If so, I'd love to know how. I have tried creating parameters in MS-Query with the same name, but although I get the prompt it doesn't connect with the Access query as the source for the parameter value.

If the solution requires using code, I'm good with VB Code in Excel...is there VB for Excel code that could make this happen?

Failing that, I guess there must be (I've seen a few in my search thus far) Access VB Code that can make this work. I'm very rusty using VB with Access, so this is my least favored solution. However, if this is the only option, keep in mind that I need to pass the paramater ultimately from a user who will initiate the process using Excel.

I haven't a clue how to do this and i need it to be explained to me in general terms with words of one syllable!

Query An Access Query With VBA Function

Jul 8, 2008

I'm trying to query a query in Access 2003, from Excel 2003.

The query in Access looks like:
AccessQuery: [SELECT VBAFunction(field1) FROM Table]

The query in Excel looks like:
ExcelQuery: [SELECT * FROM AccessQuery]

I use the following VBA code in Excel to excecute the query:

With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(cDataSheetName).QueryTables.Add(Connection:=strConnection, _
Destination:=ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(cDataSheetName).Range("A1"), Sql:=strQuery)
.RowNumbers = True
.Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
iResultRowCount = .ResultRange.Rows.Count
End With
When I execute this code I get the error message 'SQL Syntax Error' (Error 1004). When I remove the VBA function from the query in Access, it all works fine.

Ranking Query

Apr 30, 2009

I have a spreadsheet which we use to rank scores for our golf society.

At the start of our season it was decided that if anyone of the top 3 scores were tied we would separate them using a second criteria(back nine score). Any scores from position 4 down would still be tied.

From searching this forum i have managed to separate ties using the 'back nine' second criteria(using a hidden helper column) but only for all the ranking positions not just the top 3.

I have attached the file.

Re-using Query Names

Oct 18, 2009

how I would be able to weed out and remove previous references to query names.

For example if I have an external data query named "qry1 by week", then remove the query, then create another one, how do I use the same query name again? Surely there's a reference to it somewhere, that I can eliminate?

Parameter Query

Sep 16, 2007

Here it goes.

My spreadsheet is populated by data coming from MS Query, i'm entering a parameter value to display the desired data in my spreadsheet. My problem is, i have to close and open the file to have the parameter prompt so in that case i can enter the parameter value.

Is there anyway to call the parameter prompt so i will not open and close the file, its really time consuming...

If possible, i just want a command button that calls the parameter prompt.

Web Query With QueryTables

May 30, 2009

I am having problems getting to work a web query in a VBA macro. The goal is simply to get a value retrieved from a web query into an excel cell.

The below code works well with standard html pages (like replacing the url with www.google.com). However, the page I want to retreive (a query at geonames.org that retreives an altitude value for given lattitude/longitude values) does not contain any HTML headers, but just a number in plain text. In this case the below query does not returns anything. I tried different formating options for the query but up to nownothing works.

Trying To Delete A Query

Oct 7, 2009

What my excel sheet is doing is importing a bunch of data from a query. I have all my queries linked to buttons through macros. There are going to be 20-30 buttons that are linked to a query, and each query will produce a different amount of data(in this case, account numbers). When pressing a button linked to a query(i also have one 'Clear' button that just deletes the data, thats all), i use a macro to delete the previous query so it can import the new query into the same cell. The problem I am having is that when a button is pushed and there is no query, I am getting an error message. Here is my original code(macro), and the underlined code is where i am getting the error

How To Get Hyperlink From Web Query

Jun 24, 2014

I have some thousand web queries in an excel sheet, and now I need to get the hyerlinks from each of the query into cells in another sheet. I need this as the users in addition to looking at the data I have pulled need to access the actual webpages to look at the original report - where there are a lot of images that is not effective to put into my excel report.

What I want is to get the "name" value from the properties of the web queries, and then paste the value in a cell in another sheet. I can't seem to find any answers to how to extract the actual parameter values from a web query - but it seems like it should be possible...?

Web Query Macro

Mar 6, 2007

I'm using this macro in order to bring some data to two cells.. it's currently working great...

With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:= _
"URL;http://magpie.boise.itc.hp.com:8080/gip/fileStatus.jsp?transKey=GUS8301D&fileName=GUS8301DBN2AFH3M" _
, Destination:=Range("A1"))
.Name = "fileStatus.jsp?transKey=GUS8301D&fileName=GUS8301DBN2AFH3M"
.FieldNames = True
.RowNumbers = False
.FillAdjacentFormulas = False

However, as you can see from the text in bold i'm currently telling the url instead of bringing it from a cell with an url. I want the macro to be able to select the url from a cell.

I'm trying to use this solution, but i keep getting a Run-time erro 5:
Invalid procedure call or argument.

connstring = Range("GUS8301!B3").Value

Macro Query

Jul 4, 2008

i have recorded a macro wherein i need to copy paste some data in my database everyday.
now the problem is tht the macro doesnot catch the last row.

for instance if i paste data today in A2:A10
tomorrow it should automatically paste data starting from A11.

the range of data tht i copy is not fixed.

This is a part of macro...
Selection.End(xlDown).Select (This takes me to the last record on that row)
is there anyway i can copy the data in next column?

'Range("A11").Select (This will work only for the first time when i run the macro)

but if i use the same one tomorrow
Selection.End(xlDown).Select This will take me to the last record but..
it will again go to
and then paste records there

Matching Query

I keep getting run-time and application defined errors..

Theere are 2 sheets srctestdata and lists

after entering data in the start and end row...the macro reads column 5 in srctestdata character by character. if any of the characters are ," ", commas etc...it ignores it and concantenates the letters are numbers. this is stored in chemNameSrc.

focus then moves to lists sheet.

here th macro reads the list starting at row 12 ending at 211.

stores letters are numbers in chemNamelist

chemNameSrc and chemNameList are compared. If equal then ok. If not, macro goes through the full list on lists sheet. It will color the cell red where there are no hits.

here is the
Option Explicit

Dim startRow, endRow, manhole, i, j, u, v, x, y, k, characters, endRowList As Integer

Dim nameHolder, letterHolder, chemNameSrc, chemNameList, testYear As String

Sub PopulateSheet()
