SQL*XL: Database query cell formula.

Database query cell formula

In this demo SQL*XL's SQLQueryValue formula will be demonestrated. It binds a query result to a cell.


I will query the currencies table (columns code and description) to lookup the description for a currency code. The needed SQL is: select description from currencies .


To retrieve the description for the correct currency code the following where clause is added. Note the use of the concatenation operator & and that we need to wrap the code in single quotes:

"select description from currencies where code = '" & A1 & "'"


After creating one formula, simply copy it down so it works on the other source cells too.
