Updating ole ole
What I would like to know how to do is this: How can I update information in rows and columns of an embedded excel table using only VBA? I have the table embedded in a word document, and Im stuck at the point of passing some variables that are being defined on the fly by a loop.
For example, is there some code I could put in that would update all external links every time the source file is updated? Update Next oshp Next osld End Sub When I run the macro it updates the links as required, but what I need it to do is to run the update on every loop of the slideshow and either: Ignore the source file if it in use and update next time around. I don't mind which of the two happen, so long as the updating does not stop the continuous loop. Also, although the code above does update the links, feel free to ament it/improve it if you can.I need to open the table (without activating or selecting it, since that will interfere with the search word is doing to find the lines that will eventually contain XForce, YForce, etc), find the last empty row in that table, and paste those variables as the loop cycles through into the next empty row of that table. Once the loop ends, I also would need to close out of the table as well. Workbook, ect, to no avail, and I cannot find out from anywhere online what to do once you get the OLE object recognized (the part where the strings will get pasted into an empty row in the embedded table everytime the loop comes around again). End Key Unit:=wd Line, Extend:=wd Extend Entire Load Line = Selection ZMoment = Replace(LTrim(RTrim(Right(Entire Load Line, 11))), Chr(13), "") YMoment = LTrim(Mid(Entire Load Line, 54, 11)) XMoment = LTrim(Mid(Entire Load Line, 43, 11)) ZForce = LTrim(Mid(Entire Load Line, 32, 11)) YForce = LTrim(Mid(Entire Load Line, 21, 11)) XForce = LTrim(Mid(Entire Load Line, 10, 11)) Joint ID = LTrim(RTrim(Mid(Entire Load Line, 2, 4))) .

According to Microsoft, OLE technology will have a fundamental role in the evolution of the Windows platform.- embedded OLE objects contain special streams (Comp Obj and Ole) which seem to need updating. - The picture you see in Power Point is a snapshot of the OLE object in WMF format.
Even if you modify the data, the snapshot will be old. For user convenience I added a set accessor for the ole data.

Here is the code I currently have: ZMoment = LTrim(Right(Entire Load Line, 11)) YMoment = LTrim(Mid(Entire Load Line, 54, 11)) XMoment = LTrim(Mid(Entire Load Line, 43, 11)) ZForce = LTrim(Mid(Entire Load Line, 32, 11)) YForce = LTrim(Mid(Entire Load Line, 21, 11)) XForce = LTrim(Mid(Entire Load Line, 10, 11)) I am using Word 2007, and Excel 2007. I appreciate any help you can give me on this as I have a TON of documents I have to do this for!!!!
HOWEVER, now the borders of my table are distorted.
In this chapter, we'll build our first COM object though a series of steps, starting with a plain Delphi DLL; this will help you understand the key elements of OLE technology.
