expression An expression that returns a DataRecordset object.
A shape linked to data that has a conflict after the data recordset is refreshed.
This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to use the RemoveRefreshConflict method to remove conflicts. It calls the GetAllRefreshConflicts method to determine which shapes, if any, have conflicts after a data recordset is refreshed. Then it calls the GetMatchingRowsForRefreshConflict method to determine which data recordset row or rows is causing the conflict.
It refreshes the data recordset most recently added and if it finds no resulting conflicts, prints "No conflicts" in the Immediate window. If it does find conflicts, it passes each of the shapes that have conflicts to the GetMatchingRowsForRefreshConflict method and prints the resulting row IDs in the same window. Then it passes the shapes that have conflicts to the RemoveRefreshConflict method to remove the conflicts.
Before running this macro, make sure that the most recently added data recordset is a connected (non-XML-based) data recordset and that the connection to the original data source is still available. Then delete a row in the data source or make another change that will cause a conflict when you refresh the data recordset.
