archmaesters, the connection line went wrong, how do I correct it? Thanks connection1.Open: "provider= microsoft.jet.oledb.4.0; extended properties= excel.8.0; data source=" & ThisWorkbook.path & "/database/exceldata.xls"

VBA Code:
Sub adddata()
Dim connection1 As New ADODB.Connection
Dim command1 As String
connection1.Open: "provider= microsoft.jet.oledb.4.0; extended properties= excel.8.0; data source=" & ThisWorkbook.path & "/database/exceldata.xls"
sql = " insert into [sheet1$] (name, age, gender)  values('jesus', 27, 'male')"

connection1.Execute sql
connection1.Close
Set Connection = Nothing
End Sub
 

Excel Facts

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

Remove the colon after Open

If you're using 365 you should probably be using Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 rather than microsoft.jet.oledb.4.0

just tried not working and the tutorial saved this in classmodule. It works

VBA Code:
Property Get database12()
database12 = "provider=microsoft.jet.oledb.4.0;extended properties=excel 8.0;data source=" & ThisWorkbook.path & "/Database/exceldata.xls"
End Property

nvm i copied pasted it and works again i think it's just a tiny syntax error somewhere
