DefineTables

Assign table names to ranges.

Syntax


property DefineTables: String;

Data Type

String

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property is used to define the ranges within a worksheet that will appear as tables. The value is a semicolon-separated list of name-value pairs in the form [Table Name]=[Workbook Name]_[Worksheet Name]![Range].

Here is an example DefineTables value:

DefineTables="Table1=Test_xlsx_Sheet1!A1:N25,Table2=Spreadsheet1_Sheet2!C3:M53,Table4=xIsPcLs2-bF3AavQcSLCfzs3kGc_Sheet4!C20:N60"

After setting DefineTables, you can then issue queries that reference the specified table name. Note that you can also use the range syntax directly in the SQL statement: append the range to the worksheet name with the # character.

For example, the following command will select the range of cells between A1 and E5:

SELECT * FROM Test_xlsx_Sheet1#A1:E5
