A collection of QueryTable objects.

Each QueryTable object represents a worksheet table built from data returned from an external data source.

Use the QueryTables property to return the QueryTables collection. The following example displays the number of query tables on the active worksheet.

MsgBox ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Count

Use the Add method to create a new query table and add it to the QueryTables collection. The following example creates a new query table.

Dim qt As QueryTable 
sqlstring = "select 96Sales.totals from 96Sales where profit < 5" 
connstring = _ 
With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:=connstring, _ 
 Destination:=Range("B1"), Sql:=sqlstring) 
End With
