    I'm using this connection string to connect to an Excel file :

    db.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\ExcelFile.xls;Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;IMEX=0"""

    I'm running this query to delete all the records from table [Mytable$] :

    rs.open "DELETE * FROM [Mytable$]"

    I'm getting this error :

    Deleting data in a linked table is not supported by this ISAM


    Is there way to DELETE excel rows from vb? :rolleyes:

    You have some relationships on the tables you are trying to delete.
