    Question Run-time error 1004 Table Cannot Overlap A Range...

    I used the macro recorder in Excel 2007 to record the code below. The code is supposed to use a .iqy to pull data from a SharePoint 2007 site. When I run the macro, I receive the following error: A table cannot overlap a range that contains a PivotTable report, query results, protected cells or another table. I have no issue running the .iqy query from excel without using the macro. Any idea what's causing the 1004 error?

    Wow... I had this exact same problem just now.

    I used this code instead:
    wksData.Range("B1").Select
    Selection.ListObject.QueryTable.Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False

    The second line I generated using the macro recorder, then selecting "Table tools" from the ribbon and clicking on refresh. When I refreshed by rightclicking, selecting edit query, then clicking OK, i got code similar to yours and I got the same error when trying to run the macro. But the simpler .Refresh method seems to work.

    Edit: OK, the wow is not worth as much - thought you posted this yesterday, not last year. lol.

    Hello and welcome to the forum. Please make sure to add code tags around your code as per the forum rules.

    Also would this be a shorter version of your code:

    You often don't need to use select a range before doing something to it.

    Hope this helps.

    Dearnemo385,

    Your post does not comply with Rule 2 of our Forum RULES. Don't post a question in the thread of another member -- start your own thread. If you feel it's particularly relevant, provide a link to the other thread. It makes sense to have a new thread for your question because a thread with numerous replies can be off putting & difficult to pick out relevant replies.
