TextFilePromptOnRefresh Property [Excel 2003 VBA Language Reference]

Office 2003

True if you want to specify the name of the imported text file each time the query table is refreshed. The Import Text File dialog box allows you to specify the path and file name. The default value is False. Read/write Boolean.


Use this property only when your query table is based on data from a text file (with the QueryType property set to xlTextImport).

If the value of this property is True, the dialog box doesn't appear the first time a query table is refreshed.

The default value is True in the user interface.


This example prompts the user for the name of the text file whenever the query table on the first worksheet in the first workbook is refreshed.

Set shFirstQtr = Workbooks(1).Worksheets(1) 
Set qtQtrResults = shFirstQtr.QueryTables _
    .Add(Connection := "TEXT;C:\My Documents\19980331.txt", _
        Destination := shFirstQtr.Cells(1,1))
With qtQtrResults
    .TextFileParseType = xlDelimited
    .TextFilePromptOnRefresh = True
    .TextFileTabDelimiter = True
End With
