Dim con As New ADODB.Connection

Where do you add the connection string and issue the open method?

Hi clocker, think you may not have added a reference to adodb
Click on Project, Add Reference, click on the COM tab, scroll down the list and select Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.8 Object Library (or whichever version you wish) and click ok

thanks man, i added the reference to adodb now it is working

please who can help me ? i would be very grateful.
i would love to convert contents on one column to headers

like making the contents to be headers that accepts data from another column
