I have a file where I am getting some external data from another excel file by using the Microsoft Query in Excel. There is no problem retrieving the data which I am doing through an ActiveX control button where part of the sub is ThisWorkbook.RefreshAll.

My issue is that when a user clicks the button to update (ThisWorkbook.RefreshAll) it causes the file that is being queried to open but this only happens if I have the file with the table of data open. If I don’t have it open, everything is fine for them. Any thoughts as to why this would happen?

Thanks in advance for your help!
