In Microsoft Excel 97, you can use Data Access Objects in a Visual Basic for Applications macro to add, remove, or modify records in a database. If the database is in a Microsoft Excel 97 workbook, you can add a record to the list in the workbook by using a macro similar to the following sample code:
Sub AddRecordToTest() ' IMPORTANT: Create a reference to "Microsoft DAO 3.5 Object ' Library" before you attempt to run this macro. To reference the ' library, click References on the Tools menu, click the check box ' for the library and click OK. ' Dimension variables for use by DAO. Dim Db As Database Dim Rs As Recordset ' Open the database in Test.xls. Set Db = OpenDatabase("C:\My Documents\Test.xls", _ False, False, "Excel 8.0;") ' Open the list in Sheet1 of Test.xls. The list starts in cell A1. ' These commands select the last record in the list, add a new ' record, set the value in the first column of the list, and update ' the list. Rs.MoveLast Rs.AddNew Rs.Fields(0).Value = 1 Rs.Update ' Close the list and database. Rs.Close Db.Close End Sub
If you run this macro, a new record containing the value 1 is added to the list in Sheet1 of Test.xls. However, if Test.xls contains a formula that refers to a function included in the Analysis ToolPak, you cannot open Test.xls after running this macro.
