Excel 2013 won't format as a table after importing from a CSV using VB script

I have a sheet that I am importing data from a CSV file that I then unlink it from the data and format it as a table. This works perfectly when I do it manually but when I attempt to do this with a Macro I always get a "Run-time Error 1001" unless I save and reopen the file.

I delete the external data connections using this bit of code from elsewhere in this forum

[/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=#333333][FONT=Verdana]sub delete_Connections()[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=#333333][FONT=Verdana]do while activeworkbook.connections.count > 0[/FONT][/COLOR]



[COLOR=#333333][FONT=Verdana]end sub[/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=#222222][FONT=Verdana]

I also recorded my format steps so if there is a better way to format as a table I am open to improving the code.

Range("A1:F17").Select    ActiveSheet.ListObjects.Add(xlSrcRange, Range("$A$1:$F$17"), , xlYes).Name = _[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=#222222][FONT=Verdana]        "Table1"[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=#222222][FONT=Verdana]    Range("Table1[#All]").Select[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=#222222][FONT=Verdana]    ActiveSheet.ListObjects("Table1").TableStyle = "TableStyleMedium2"

This code does remove the connections if you go into the connections manager, but something seems to hold it in memory until you close and reopen the file.

Having to close and open the file after the <g class="gr_ gr_28 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace" id="28" style='background-position: -1px calc(100% + 3px); color: rgb(34, 34, 34); text-transform: none; text-indent: 0px; letter-spacing: normal; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; font-style: normal; font-weight: 400; word-spacing: 0px; border-bottom-color: transparent; border-bottom-width: 2px; border-bottom-style: solid; display: inline; white-space: normal; orphans: 2; widows: 2; background-image: url("data:image/svg+xml;base64,PHN2ZyB4bWxucz0naHR0cDovL3d3dy53My5vcmcvMjAwMC9zdmcnIHdpZHRoPScxMDAlJyBoZWlnaHQ9JzEwMCUnPgogIDxsaW5lIG9wYWNpdHk9JzAuNzUnIHgxPSc0JyB5MT0nMTAwJScgeDI9JzEwMCUnIHkyPScxMDAlJyB0cmFuc2Zvcm09J3RyYW5zbGF0ZSgtMS41LCAtMi41KScgc3Ryb2tlLXdpZHRoPSczJyBzdHJva2UtbGluZWNhcD0ncm91bmQnIHN0cm9rZT0nI2ZjNTQ1NCcvPgo8L3N2Zz4K"); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-size: calc(100% + 1px) 100%; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; text-decoration-style: initial; text-decoration-color: initial;' data-gr-id="28">import</g> kind of removes the automation I am going for. I have a workaround where I have to launch a second script after importing to finish the formatting but I am trying to make this a one-button job so I can give it to others in my shop that have to do the same work.
