Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using Excel function Indirect in Smart View HSGetValue function's connection name parameter causes all sheets to be refreshed when clicking on Refresh button. Without indirect function only the currently active sheet gets refreshed which is the expected behavior.


 In place of HSGetValue(CellReference_Having_Connection_Name, POV...) used HSGetValue(Indirect(CellAddress),POV...). The Indirect function will then refer the CellAddress for the actual cell reference having the Connection Name.
