If you import data using the object model, data from a Web query or a text query must be imported as a QueryTable , while all other external data can be imported as either a ListObject or a QueryTable.

You can use the QueryTable property of the ListObject to access the RefreshStyle property.

Dim qt As QueryTable 
Set qt = Sheets("sheet1").QueryTables _ 
 .Add(Connection:="Finder;c:\myfile.dqy", _ 
With qt 
 .RefreshStyle = xlInsertEntireRows 
End With
