From Excel 2003, you could use Tables. A cDataSet is somewhat like a table in that is structured data, expecting headings etc. When you use bigCommit() in cDataSet, it wipes out the existing Excel data and replaces it with the values you have changed. This has the side effect of eliminating any Excel table that may have been mapped to that data.
Private Function testListObject()
Dim o As ListObject, ds As cDataSet, sName As String
Set ds = New cDataSet
With ds.populateData(wholeSheet("vbaparsedata"), , , , , , True)
' this will record if any list object currently exists overlapping this dataset
Set o = .activeListObject
' keep the same name
If Not o Is Nothing Then sName = o.name
' do a bigcommit
' did that delete it?
Debug.Print .activeListObject Is Nothing
' reset to new size
' whats the dimension?
