FireDAC Components for Excel Online

Build 21.0.7930

Using Formulas

Set the following properties to configure formula evaluation when executing SELECT, INSERT, and UPDATE statements.

Selecting Formulas

The component can return either the result of the formula or the formula itself; configure this behavior with the ValueRenderOption connection property.

Inserting and Updating Formulas

Set AllowFormula to true to insert formulas (the default). Otherwise, all values used in inserts and updates are inserted as string literals.

For example, with AllowFormula set to true, the following will insert a formula into the B column that will sum cells B1:B5:

INSERT INTO Excel_Sheet (A, B) VALUES ('Bill', '=SUM(B1:B5)')

Note: If AllowFormula is set to true, every column containing a formula will be exposed as String type regardless of the set TypeDetectionScheme.
