...Database Queries with database views, that base on many database t
I created 2 database views. Each of them uses 256 database tables.
From every database table only one column is used in the select list of the
view. Every database table has one column which is used for the join.
Each database table has 5 rows. The database tables have not any foreign
keys and indexes.
Both views works fine. When I use the database views in a query like this:
SELECT v1.*, v2.* FROM v1, v2 WHERE v1.id=v2.id
I should get 5 rows with 512 columns in the resultset.

You could add a button to the sheet with following code behind it:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
cel1 = InputBox("First cell?")
cel2 = InputBox("Second cell?")
c1 = Range(cel1).Value
c2 = Range(cel2).Value
Range(cel1).Value = c2
Range(cel2).Value = c1
You will be asked for the 2 cell addresses and the contents will be
