I use an excel add-in to extract data from the Onestream XF financial planning system. The addin tab has a refresh button per the below.

What are my options to automate this refresh button? I tried recording a macro and clicking it but with no luck

thanks

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple
You could add the following to a sheetChange event

VBA Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

    ThisWorkbook.RefreshAll

End Sub

How does this work when the refresh is on an addin and not anywhere I can see in the connections list?

I actually have too many sheets to refresh all of them I would need to set up a loop to go through each tab and refresh that tab.

Thanks
