Hi all,
I am new on this websites as I started with Excel few years ago and my knowledges are not so exciting. However try to do some things on my own. I try to run some macro in my excel sheet called RoutesQuery. We have 3 drivers and everyone has his own route with the customers. I take the data from external database and try to put it into macro to be able to overwrite the route for every driver automatically and print out the sheet. When I use the macro button it works but macro does not wait until the data from the database are refreshed. It means I have finaly 3 the same pages for the same route and the rest is not created. Could anyone help how to sort it out?
Thank you in advance.
Martin

Welcome to the board.

Use BackgroundQuery:= False as in:

Code:
Range("A5").QueryTable.Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
