Automation in Excel: VBA for ODBC Connection Management

Client Description

Mike required an efficient Excel VBA solution to manage ODBC connections within an active workbook. The primary objectives were clear-cut:

  1. Purge all existing ODBC connections in the active workbook.
  2. Dynamically establish ten ODBC connections, referencing connection strings present in a designated sheet. This setup was to be loop-driven, allowing flexibility in increasing the number of connections in the future.
  3. Fetch data through these connections into arrays.
  4. Populate ten new worksheets with the data sourced from these arrays.

Mike emphasized a concise and straightforward approach, eliminating the need for extended cover letters or bids.
