Connecting from VBA

Before you Connect

Prior to connecting from VBA, it is necessary to add a reference to the add-in. This should be done once per module.

From the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window ("Visual Basic" on the Developer ribbon), navigate to Tools -> References. Check the box next to CData Excel Add-In and confirm with OK.

Establishing a Connection

You can use the following code to start Querying Data.

Dim module As New ExcelComModule
