The linked data range resizes dynamically with every refresh.
Any formula cells directly adjacent to the import range will expand
and shrink with the resized data range. So the clearly defined row
sets of a database enable dynamically resizing formula ranges. A
feature that does not exist with a pure spreadsheet. Tons of silly
macro code have been written for this.
Its properties are accessible via menu:Data>Define...
Below [More Options] we have 4 widely unknown options:
1) Contains column labels (always true for database imports)
2) Keep formatting: spreadsheet formatting overrides any Base
formatting. Should be true by default.
3) Insert/remove cells: Do not overwrite/clear cells when the database
range expands/shrinks. Should be true by default, particularly with
resizing formula ranges.
4) Don't save imported data. Useful with very large row sets and when
you want to refresh on open. Prompts for refresh when opening the file.
Wow! You gave me a lot to think about. I will have to experiment a bit
with these suggestions.
Thank you very much for your help.
