Refreshes objects in the report based on type. (New in Version 7.1)

This allows you to refresh objects on demand.

This function is for use with the XL3Link function, which can be used to switch the refresh on.


XL3RefreshObjects( [RunRefresh], [RefreshGrids], [RefreshTables], [RefreshSlicers], [RefreshSmallMultiples], [RefreshTreemaps] )


Parameter Description
RunRefresh Should the refresh fire. This should be a reference to another cell that contains TRUE or FALSE. Once the refresh fires that cell will be reset to FALSE. Use XL3Link to set the cell to true, causing a refresh.
RefreshGrids TRUE or FALSE. Refresh all Grids.
RefreshTables TRUE or FALSE. Refresh all Tables.
RefreshSlicers TRUE or FALSE. Refresh all Slicers.
RefreshSmallMultiples TRUE or FALSE. Refresh all SmallMultiples.
RefreshTreemaps TRUE or FALSE. Refresh all Treemaps.

You may also call the formula with just the RunRefresh parameter to refresh all types.


This example assumes you are using cell $A$1 to hold the RunRefresh variable. We will refresh just the grids.

First, create the XL3RefreshObjects, as follows:

=XL3RefreshObjects($A$1, True)

Next set up the link to fire the refresh, as follows:

=XL3Link(XL3Address($A$1),"Refresh All",,XL3Address($A$1),TRUE)

Now clicking the hyperlink will refresh all grids in the workbook.
