Attempts to convert all the cells in the range to a Linked data type such as Stocks or Geography.
expression.ConvertToLinkedDataType (ServiceID, LanguageCulture)
expression A variable that represents a Range object.
|ServiceID||Required||Long||The ID of the service that will provide the linked entity.|
|LanguageCulture||Required||String||A string representing the LCID of the language and culture that you would like to use for the linked entity.|
The method will fail and throw a runtime exception 1004 if the specified locale is not supported on the specified service.
It will have no effect (and throw no exception) in these cases:
- The cells in the range are blank (that is, there is nothing to convert).
- The cells in the range contain a formula. If you want to convert such a range, you need to set the cell values to the current calc result first.
- The cells in the range have already been converted to the specified data type.
This code will convert cell E5 to a Stocks Linked data type in the US-English locale.
Range("E5").ConvertToLinkedDataType ServiceID:=268435456, LanguageCulture:= "en-US"
This code will convert cell E6 to a Geography Linked data type in the US-English locale.
Range("E6").ConvertToLinkedDataType ServiceID:=536870912, LanguageCulture:= "en-US"
