SQL*XL API: TargetExcel Object

TargetExcel Object


Class clsTargetExcel is a subclass of:



The TargetExcel object implements the functionality to output data from SQL*XL to MS Excel. The properties of TargetExcel determine the way data is output to Excel. To obtain a reference to the targetExcel object use the Targets property of the SQLXL object. Example: SQLXL.Targets( litExcel ).Headings = False

Physically, output is generated by the Statement objects notably the StmtDQL object that implements select statements. The execute method of the Statement outputs the data according to the setting of the Target property on the Statement. If Statement.Target = litExcel then output will be generated in Excel.
