As I have suggested earlier, one entire sheet will be treated as one single table, so if you have multiple datasets that were currently organized within one sheet you may have to create multiple sheets to store that data to be able to use them as tables. Many people ask, how to consolidate 2 or more sheets which have the similar data.Well I would have adopted this method and wrote a simple query as below.We need some raw data and we will utilize Customer Service Dashboard sample database here. First we will design the structure of what all option we want to present for filtering the data, which you can see in the interface below.Once the user clicks on Show Data we will use a SQL statement to filter-out the data as per the drop down options selected by the user and the put them in the table below.If your macro does some copying and pasting, you might also want to press Esc before you stop recording, to remove the border from the copied range.
We need to add a reference to the Microsoft Active X Data Objects Library to be able to use the worksheet as a database table. I usually select the most recent version, however if you are developing a product it will be best suited if you are familiar with the operating system and office version used by the end-user’s system and accordingly select the best version available.
Often I have thought, if I could have write “Select Employee Name From Sheet Where Employee ID=123” and use this on my excel sheet, my life would be simpler. People spend a lot of time thinking whether to use Excel as their database or not.
